Want to live longer with good sight? Then go to the market with your basket and buy kilos of carrots.




Do not philosophize by saying no rabbits live that long with sharp eyes. The good thing with carrots is that you can consume it in any way you like. 

You can eat a carrot raw. You can transform it into juice or cook it as vegetable for a healthy meal.

Carrots are rich in vitamin A that helps prevent vision loss due to old age. A drug based from the vitamin called Fenretinide can stop the spreading of dry age-related macular degeneration.

Seriously, carrots and other sources of vitamin A can halt visual deterioration which is normal to people as they age.

Fenretinide is also being used to treat cancers and rheumatoid arthritis. Experts who are developing this drug are looking on the ways to treat dry AMD with the drug. AMD is caused by the deterioration and death of cells in the macula of the eye.

Experts also say that if they become successful with the drug, the drug can let old people read books, recognize people, drive to different cities to meet friends, watch TV and many more with sharp vision.
