Believe it or not, carbohydrates that your food contains are enough to kick off the risk of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), which is one of the common causes behind vision loss in older adults – claims a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Researchers’ this assumption is based on an analysis in which they studied around 4,099 participants between the ages 55 to 80 years. During the course of study, they noticed that regular consumption of carbs-rich diet (with a high-glycemic index) was playing a key-role in increasing the risk of AMD. Foods like bread, pasta, rice are known to have high-glycemic-index, which means that their consumption is bound to shoot up your blood-sugar level.
This finding somewhere seems to be propping the view expressed by Dr. Allen Taylor, of Tufts University, Boston, and colleagues, as they say:
Men and women who consumed diets with a higher glycemic index than average for their gender and age-group were at greater risk of developing advanced AMD.
Keeping in view the facts, looming out of this study it could be asserted that it would better to prefer low-carbs diet intake than diet with high-carbs, for it is low-carbs diet that provides you with maximum benefits and not the high-carbs diet.
