cataracts

  1. SAVE your vision from the WORST sign of aging

    Cataracts are a LEADING cause of vision loss in America’s seniors – and when your eyes go, you can kiss your independence goodbye.

    You want HELP beating this. You want answers. And you’d LOVE to avoid surgery.

    But what do they give you?

    Dumb gimmicks and cheap headlines!

    And they’re out with the dumbest and cheapest yet – something I can pretty much guarantee won’t make a lick of difference.

    But there’s a reason they’re trying to distract you with this nonsense, and it’s because they hope you NEVER learn the true cause of the explosion in cataracts in recent years.

    Spoiler: It’s not your age.

    So allow me to pull back the curtain today and show you what’s really going on… as well as a way to put a stop to cataracts before they start and prevent or at least delay the need for surgery so you can keep your independence and quality of life for years to come.

    REVEALED: The TRUE cause of cataracts

    I hate to play party-pooper.

    So trust me, it gives me no pleasure to tell you that new study making headlines… the one that claims BOOZE can prevent CATARACTS… is almost certainly bunk.

    Just one look at the details should tell ya that – because the numbers are all over the place.

    For example, if you have a drink four times a week, your odds of needing surgery drop by 6 percent.

    But if you have a drink six times a week, the odds INCREASE by 6 percent.

    Here’s another weird part of this thing: They had two study groups. In one, wine cut the odds of cataract surgery by 23 percent. In the other, it was just 14 percent.

    And another: You can cut that risk with up to 6.5 drinks a week. But… again… drinking EVERY night will increase the risk instead.

    See the problem with that? In theory, you can get absolutely wasted once a week… knocking back six drinks in a single binge… and as long as you abstain the other nights, your risk will plunge.

    But if you spread those drinks out moderately to just one a night, your cataract risk will jump.

    What kinda sense does THAT make???

    Like I said, this nonsense is just a distraction. If you want to prevent cataracts, there’s one important step to take – one the drug industry hopes you NEVER learn.

    DON’T TAKE A STATIN!

    That one step alone will do more for your eyes than all the wine in France, as a study last year found these cholesterol meds will increase your odds of this vision-stealing condition by 27 percent.

    There are two much easier steps you can take to prevent cataracts:

    • Wear sunglasses, since UV light can accelerate the damage
    • Take a vision supplement with lutein and zeaxanthin

    Along with preventing cataracts, that same duo will help ward off macular degeneration, which is another leading cause of vision loss in seniors.

    If you DO need surgery, don’t put it off. It’s not as bad as it sounds, and your vision’s a whole lot more important to your health, wellbeing and quality of life than a couple days of discomfort.

  2. Cataracts linked to diabetes

    Stop your cataracts... BEFORE they start!

    It's one of the leading causes of vision loss on the entire planet.

    And because it sinks in so slowly, you could be at risk for this condition right now... and not even know it!

    Now, the latest research exposes one of the biggest risk factors for cataracts.

    It's not just age, as most doctors will tell you.

    It's not just meds, even though some of them -- including statin drugs -- can wreck your eyesight even faster than age.

    It's another disease, one that 100 million Americans either already have or are at risk of getting.

    It's diabetes -- and if you've got it, you could be developing cataracts right now, even if you've never so much as needed a pair of reading glasses.

    The new study finds that folks with diabetes not only face double the risk of cataracts or more, but they can start at earlier-than-ever ages and become more severe when they do strike.

    It's easy to see how it happens, too.

    When you have diabetes, you're often struggling to keep up with all of the risks you're facing.

    There are heart problems... pain problems... infection problems... and even a chance of amputation.

    If that's not enough, diabetes can also wreck your brain from the inside, leading to dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

    With all of those risks to worry about, it's easy to see why cataracts get overlooked.

    By the time you realize what's happening, they're already forming -- and soon, you're left struggling to see. You may even be unable to drive.

    If there's any good news here, it's that cataracts can be knocked out with a simple surgery.

    It's certainly better than going blind... but it's no picnic, either.

    But there's another option -- a way to avoid both the cataracts and the surgery -- and I'm going to help you do just that.

    The new study doesn't show why diabetes causes those cataracts, but it's almost certainly the excess blood sugar, which can damage your eyes in any number of ways.

    Keep your glucose under control, and you can help stop those cataracts from forming.

    Even better, you can help cut your risk of diabetic retinopathy, another major cause of blindness. And unlike cataracts, retinopathy can't be fixed with a quickie operation.

    Despite what your doc might tell you, the best way to control blood sugar isn't with your meds.

    It's with your diet.

    Make the switch to a grain-free, low-sugar, and limited-carb diet based on the Mediterranean lifestyle, and you can help bring your glucose under control and protect every part of your body... including your eyes.

  3. Cataracts slowed by vitamin C

    Cataracts are common as we age and often require surgery, but new research finds that vitamin C can slow the progression so you may not need to go under the knife.
  4. Antioxidants prevent vision problems

    Boost your antioxidants and you could cut your risk of cataracts by 13 percent, according to a new study.
  5. Statin drugs can rob you of your vision

    Cholesterol-lowering statin drugs can increase your risk of cataracts by more than a quarter, according to new research.
  6. Feeling tired? Could be your statin

    Women who take statins have a higher risk of fatigue, with up to 40 percent experiencing the condition while on the cholesterol-lowering meds.
  7. Statins for the masses

    Pfizer is getting ready to take a multibillion-dollar loss this fall when it loses patent protection on the best-selling drug of all time. But don't expect them to sit back and watch Lipitor's $11 billion a year in sales go down the drain. The Wall Street Journal says the company is hatching a plan to have its cholesterol-lowering drug sold over the counter.
  8. The real reason for Prozac Nation

    Who's responsible for the antidepressant frenzy that's led to 10 percent of all Americans taking these dangerous meds? If you guessed shrinks, you're only partly right. Fact is, there's been a stunning rise in the number of non-psychiatrists dishing out mood drugs.
  9. Statins on the ropes

    Researchers from the Cochrane Collaboration examined 14 trials involving more than 34,000 low-risk statin patients--influential studies used to push these drugs on millions--and found serious flaws in the research.
