Resveratrol May Help Prevent Age-Related Deterioration Of Eyesight

The UK’s Telegraph (6/25, Alleyne) reports, “resveratrol, found in particularly high levels in grape skin (and consequently red wine),” may help prevent age-related deterioration of eyesight, according to a study published in the American Journal of Pathology. “The substance…is believed to work because it protects against abnormal angiogenesis — the formation of damaged or mutated blood vessels,” a condition which “is linked to cancer, heart disease, and eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration.”
