Introduction to dietary treatment of cataract

Abstract: research reports show that dietary intake β People with the most carotenes and other carotenoids had a half lower risk of cataract than those with the least intake. A diet rich in vitamin A can reduce the risk of cataract by 40%. β Carotene is mostly contained in vegetables with dark green leaves., (1) take enough vitamins (vitamin food). Scientists at the nutrition and cataract research center of Tufts University in Boston found that vitamin C can prevent the formation of cataract. It can reduce the damage of light and oxygen to the lens. If the intake of vitamin C is insufficient, it is easy to cause crystal degeneration. Therefore, the elderly should eat more tomatoes, spinach, onions and vegetables rich in vitamin C Chinese cabbage Green beans and other fresh vegetables (vegetable food) and strawberries, oranges, grapefruit, oranges and other fruits (fruit food). In addition, scientists pointed out that low vitamin E content in the blood will also induce cataracts, because when vitamin E is reduced, it will increase the oxidation reaction, which is easy to reduce the egg white matter of the crystal (protein food) agglutinates and becomes turbid. Eat cabbage, cauliflower, sunflower oil, peanut oil (oil food), cereals (cereal food), legumes, dark green plants, liver, eggs and dairy products appropriately in the diet to get more vitamin E. A Research Report published not long ago shows that vitamin E is consumed in the diet β People with the most carotenes and other carotenoids had a half lower risk of cataract than those with the least intake. A diet rich in vitamin A can reduce the risk of cataract by 40%. β Carotene is mostly contained in vegetables with dark green leaves. In addition, there are more orange and red fruits, such as tomatoes, peaches, watermelon and carrots. Animal liver and egg milk are the best direct sources of vitamin A. vitamin A contained in vegetables such as rape, spinach, shepherd’s purse, fennel, pumpkin and tomato can also be transformed into vitamin A in the liver., (2) supplement trace elements (trace element food). The acuity of human vision is directly related to selenium. Selenium deficiency can induce lens opacity and cataract, which has long been confirmed by scientists. Foods rich in selenium include animal liver, kidney, heart, fish and shrimp, milk, egg yolk, lean meat and mushrooms Incidence rate of cataract incidence is higher in animal serum. The content of zinc in the oyster, fish, lean meat, animal liver, kidney, egg and milk products is high. The content of zinc in oyster is the highest, and the content of zinc in every 100 grams of oyster is 14 millities. The incidence rate of cataract is high in the animal food. The content of zinc in the oyster is high. The content of zinc in the oyster is the highest. The content of zinc in oyster, fish, lean meat, animal liver, kidney, egg and milk is the highest. The content of zinc in oyster is the highest. The amount of zinc in every oyster is 14. Grams.,    (3) drink more tea. In a large number of observation and comparison, medical researchers found that the elderly who drank 5 cups of tea a day had a much lower incidence rate of cataract than those who drank no tea or few tea drinking habits, and those who drank some tea had lower incidence of cataract than those who never drank tea. Tannic acid.,

(1) take enough vitamins (vitamin food). Scientists at the nutrition and cataract research center of Tufts University in Boston found that vitamin C can prevent the formation of cataract. It can reduce the damage of light and oxygen to the lens. If the intake of vitamin C is insufficient, it is easy to cause crystal degeneration. Therefore, the elderly should eat more tomatoes, spinach, onions and vegetables rich in vitamin C Chinese cabbage Green beans and other fresh vegetables (vegetable food) and strawberries, oranges, grapefruit, oranges and other fruits (fruit food).

in addition, scientists pointed out that low vitamin E content in the blood will also induce cataract, because when vitamin E is reduced, it will increase the oxidation reaction, which is easy to reduce the protein in the crystal (protein food) agglutinates and becomes turbid. Eat cabbage, cauliflower, sunflower seed oil, peanut oil (oil food), cereals (cereal food), legumes, dark green plants, liver, eggs and dairy products to get more vitamin E.

a research report published recently shows that dietary intake β People with the most carotenes and other carotenoids had a half lower risk of cataract than those with the least intake. A diet rich in vitamin A can reduce the risk of cataract by 40%. β Carotene is mostly contained in vegetables with dark green leaves. In addition, there are more orange and red fruits, such as tomatoes, peaches, watermelon and carrots. Animal liver and egg milk are the best direct sources of vitamin A. vitamin A contained in vegetables such as rape, spinach, shepherd’s purse, fennel, pumpkin and tomato can also be transformed into vitamin A in the liver.

(2) supplement trace elements (trace element food). Human visual acuity is directly related to selenium. Selenium deficiency can induce lens opacity and cataract, which has long been confirmed by scientists. Foods rich in selenium include animal liver, kidney, heart, fish and shrimp, milk, egg yolk, lean meat, mushrooms (mushroom food), agaric, sesame, etc.

According to our research, serum zinc level is related to the incidence rate of cataract. The lower serum zinc level, the higher the incidence rate of cataract. Among animal foods, oysters, fish, lean meat, animal liver, kidney, eggs and dairy products have high zinc content, among which the zinc content in oysters is the highest, and the zinc content in every 100 grams of oysters is as much as 14 mg.

   (3) drink more tea. In a large number of observation and comparison, medical researchers found that the elderly who drank 5 cups of tea a day had a much lower incidence rate of cataract than those who drank no tea or few tea drinking habits, and those who drank some tea had lower incidence of cataract than those who never drank tea. Tannic acid.

modern medicine believes that cataract disease is due to the free radicals produced by oxidation reaction in the body acting on the lens of the eye. The large amount of tannic acid contained in tea can block the oxidation reaction of free radicals in the body, and tea can effectively prevent cataract. Therefore, it is better for the elderly to develop the habit of drinking more tea every day, because this can prevent the occurrence of senile (food for the elderly) cataract and hinder the deepening of cataract.

(4) in addition, you should also drink more water, at least one and a half liters of water a day. Don’t drink too much milk. It’s appropriate to take 250g ~ 500g every day, because milk contains lactose, which will contribute to cataract.

● choose

(1) eat more fresh vegetables and fruits rich in natural vitamin C, such as celery, cabbage, green vegetables, tomatoes, strawberries, oranges, fresh dates, etc.

(2) eat more food, green vegetables and lettuce, carrots and tomatoes, especially citrus fruits and grapes (grape food), lemon, banana and apricot. Also, eat foods containing calcium regularly.
