The relationship between myopia and diet allows children to “eat” myopia

Abstract: “eating soft food instead of hard food” and too little hard food are also one of the reasons for the increase of juvenile myopia. Chewing food can promote facial muscle movement, including the muscles that control eye movement, so as to effectively exert the regulation ability of eye lens., One of the causes of myopia: eating too sweet. Modern medical research shows that long-term excessive consumption of sweets is easy to induce eye diseases, of which the most common is myopia. This is because the metabolism of sugar in the body requires a lot of vitamin B1. If you take too much sugar, vitamin B1 will be insufficient. Moreover, excessive intake of sugar will also reduce the calcium in the body, which will weaken the elasticity of the eye wall, leading to the occurrence of myopia. For people with existing vision problems, it will contribute to the development of myopia., Coarse grain vegetables and fruits eat less and myopia is more. The second inducement of myopia: overeating. After analyzing a large number of cases, American researchers concluded that the lack of trace element chromium in the body is related to the formation of myopia. In the period of vigorous growth and development, the demand for chromium is greater than that of adults. Chromium mainly exists in coarse grains, brown sugar, vegetables, fruits and other foods. Some parents do not pay attention to food matching and eat some fine food for their children for a long time, resulting in lack of chromium in the body, convex crystalline body, increased diopter and myopia., The third inducement of myopia: eating too soft. “Eat soft but not hard” and too little hard food are also one of the reasons for the increase of juvenile myopia. Chewing food can promote facial muscle movement, including the muscles that control eye movement, so as to effectively exert the regulation ability of eye lens. Japanese researchers investigated nearly 300 students for this purpose. All those who like to eat hard food have normal eyesight, and most of those who often eat soft food have decreased eyesight to varying degrees., Chewing is also “eye exercises”. Professor Lu pointed out that on the one hand, myopia can be “eaten”. On the other hand, the prevention and treatment of myopia can also start with eating:

the third cause of myopia: eating too soft. “Eat soft but not hard” and too little hard food are also one of the reasons for the increase of juvenile myopia. Chewing food can promote facial muscle movement, including the muscles that control eye movement, so as to effectively exert the regulation ability of eye lens.

chewing is also “eye exercises”

. Professor Lu pointed out that on the one hand, myopia can be “eaten”, on the other hand, the prevention and treatment of myopia can also start with eating:

tip 1: Chew hard food. Since “eating soft rather than hard” is the enemy of good eyesight, chewing is also known as an alternative “eye exercises”. Parents can arrange chewable hard foods such as carrots, potatoes, soybeans and fruits according to children’s tooth development, so as to increase the opportunity of chewing and prevent myopia.

tip 2: eat more oranges and green vegetables. Why is the same student, the myopia rate in rural areas is far lower than that in urban areas? Western nutritionists have solved this mystery. It turns out that the occurrence of myopia is closely related to the low intake of a nutrient called lutein. Lutein content is higher in fresh green vegetables and citrus fruits. Rural children have better eyesight than urban children because they eat green vegetables directly collected from the ground every day and have a full intake of lutein. In view of this, nutritionists suggest that you should eat more citrus fruits and green vegetables every day to prevent vision degradation.

tip 3: zinc supplement. Metabolism in the eyes is extremely active, and many metabolic enzymes are metal enzymes related to zinc. Studies have shown that the content of hair zinc and serum zinc in juvenile myopia patients is significantly lower than that in normal vision patients. Zinc supplementation can improve the vision of myopia patients. Foods rich in zinc mainly include lean meat, animal liver, eggs, oysters, peanuts, walnuts, apples, etc. in addition, tofu skin, soybeans, white fungus and cabbage are also good zinc containing foods.

children of calcium deficient pregnant women are prone to myopia.

tip 4: calcium supplement. Not only for the skeletal system, calcium is also important for the eyes. The lack of calcium can reduce the elasticity of the eye wall, make the eye muscles easy to fatigue and deepen myopia. Some experts report that pregnant women with calcium deficiency have three times more children suffering from myopia in adolescence than those without calcium deficiency. It can be said that the saying that “preventing myopia should start from the fetus” is not too much.
