Years ago, you may have had the vision of a sharpshooter. Your eyes were so good that you could see into the future.
Today, you feel more like Mr. Magoo.
What happened? Diabetes — that’s what happened!
This is a disease that tries to steal your life, but before it does that it tries to rob you of your vision.
It usually succeeds, too, because this disease is one of the nation’s leading causes of vision loss in American adults.
But if you’ve got diabetes, you don’t have to resign yourself to learning Braille just yet.
New research reveals a simple, safe and downright DELICIOUS way to cut your risk of blindness in HALF.
You’re going to love this one: All you have to do is eat more delicious fatty fish like that salmon that’s so good at a late-summer BBQ.
Turns out it can give you more than a memorable meal — because the new study finds that eating fish rich in essential omega-3 fatty acids will cut the risk of diabetic retinopathy by 48 percent in folks battling diabetes.
Diabetic retinopathy is when the extra-sensitive tiny blood vessels in your eyeballs can’t handle the sugar-soaked blood rushing through. They start to swell, and then they split at the seams, leaking blood and other gunk right into your peepers.
That leads to cloudy vision, vision loss and — eventually — the blindness that adds an extra dimension of misery to a battle with diabetes.
Because this disease wrecks so much of your body so rapidly — especially the heart — most folks don’t pay close enough attention to their eyeballs, and that vision loss sneaks up on them.
By the time they realize what’s happening, it’s too late.
Don’t let this happen to you, my friend, because if there’s anything worse than struggling to live with diabetes in your senior years, it’s doing it BLIND.
The simple answer is to do just what the study says and eat fatty fish such as delicious salmon at least twice a week.
But why stop there?
The researchers behind the new study say they have no idea if higher levels will offer more protection, so I suggest you engage in a little research of your own and find out.
So along with eating more fish… including delicious wild-caught salmon with just a dash of salt… boost your intake of omega-3 fatty acids by taking a high-quality supplement from a maker you trust.
