Wine Cataract

Can Wine Help Reduce Cataracts?

New study reveals that wine consumption may reduce cataracts… only wine, not other alcoholic drinks! The wine antioxidants play a role in cataract prevention!

People who consume alcohol moderately appear less likely to develop cataracts that require surgery. Wine consumption showed the strongest protective effect, suggesting that antioxidants that are abundant in red wine may play a role in cataract prevention.

They found that drinkers who consumed alcohol below the maximum UK recommended weekly limit (up to 14 units per week, which equates to about 6.5 standard glasses of wine) were less likely to undergo cataract surgery. Those that consumed more than this amount per week were more likely to develop a cataract.

Participants with high beer, cider, or spirits consumption had no significantly reduced risk.
The authors also noted that drinking high levels of alcohol is widely linked to many serious and chronic conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
