Preventing Macular Degeneration

William Chriten of Harvard led a recent study that showed that taking B6, B12 and Folic acid, a combination that is used to lower homocysteine levels will reduce the incidence of early stage macular degeneration by one-third. This is a good reason to take these B vitamins. They also might reduce the effects of stress. The study was for women, but Christen stated in an AP news article that men would likely benefit as well. Once Macular Degeneration occurs,there is no cure, although laser therapy might arrest the problem temporarily. We have also seen nice improvements with a vitamin/mineral IV solution advocated by Jonathan Wright, as well as with EDTA chelation therapy.
