You are blessed with only a pair of eyes, take care of them and cherish them so you won’t loose them.
Some of the food we eat affect a greater percentage of our health.
For a healthy eyesight, we need to observe what we eat. We need to eat right so we can see right.
Many people when talking about care of the eye based on nutrition only talk about what to eat, they do not tell you dangerous foods to avoid because of it’s negative effects on the eyes.
My 80year old uncle who has a good eyesight gives ‘eating right’ as his eye health tip. He takes red palm oil and onions frequently, in addition to that he avoids these two foods
By avoid, I mean he minimizes the rate at which he eats them or when he does eat them he uses lots of fruits and vegetables to meet up the nutritional defecits of these meal
Now, without much Ado, here are the two classes of foods you should avoid so as not to damage your eyes
Fried foods/cholesterol filled foods
Fried foods contain high fat contents. Fat/cholesterol can clog blood vessels including the ones that supply blood and nutrients to the eyes.
When these arteries (blood vessels) are blocked, this will definitely have a damaging effect on the eyes. The lens, retina, eye muscles and other parts are all affected and this won’t yeild a good result
Please avoid fried foods, cholesterol filled foods and junk foods. You are saving your eyes when you do so
The next food is white food, by white I mean white rice, yam, spaghetti, other pastas, bread e.t.c
Most of these white food contain nothing but starch. Starch has high amount of glucose which can also block the blood vessels when undissolved in the body system
Similar way cholesterol blockage disturbs the eyes is also how the glucose will affect the eyes, it might even do worse because oxidants(toxins) could be formed as a result of it’s presence.
Whenever you eat white foods, do well to back it up with fruits and vegetables so as to meet up with it’s nutritional deficit( my Uncle did it this way and it favoured him)
Please kindly heed to this lesson taught here, and eat right to save your eyes.
