Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Article That Suggests That We Change Our Eating to Improve Our Vision

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, explains the physical benefits of consuming the right nutrients in our food to help our eyes.

NEW YORK, NY – March 30, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published an article on her website, that challenges consumers to change their diet to protect their eyes from vision loss and irreversible disease. The article, titled “Good Vision Improves Your Outlook” points out that key nutrients in foods like fish are better for preventing eye disease than packaged nutrient extracts found in supplement pills. It’s better to eat your vitamins from the source – healthy foods!

Dr. Anderson writes, “Carrots are one thing, but fish are another! It wasn’t just an old wife’s tale that your mom was quoting when she made you eat your carrots to improve your vision. She wasn’t lying when she said that carrots would help your eyes to adjust well to seeing at night. No, in fact, there is truth and scientific evidence behind your childhood vegetable requirements at the dinner table. Carrots actually contain something called beta-carotene, which our bodies transform into Vitamin A – which is important for healthy vision.”

“But there’s more. Fish oil is another vision solution. Fish oils have been shown to not only improve our Vitamin A levels – with end results of improved vision – but last week, scientific study reports showed that eating fish has been shown to fight off eye diseases such as macular degeneration as well. Now that’s worth setting our sights on. The Harvard Women’s Health Study followed over 39,000 women by collecting thorough food-frequency surveys from them starting in 1993. After the average of 10 years of follow up, the surveyed women reported 235 women had developed eye disease resulting in irreversible loss of vision,” says Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
