A calcium-rich diet or calcium supplement is found to have no role in increasing the risks of age-related macular degeneration(AMD). According to a team of researchers from National Eye Institute (NEI), AMD is one of the major causes of blindness and vision loss in Americans aged 65 Years and older. The latest report published in JAMA Ophthalmology challenges the previous findings that high calcium levels surges theoccurrence of AMDand instead justify that calcium has a defensive role in AMD.As per the study’s lead researcher, Emily Chew, Deputy Clinical Director at NEI,they have found higher calcium consumption to help lower the progression or onset of AMD,” stated the.

Chew further stated, “Therecent findings provideno evidence that there is a requirement to changethe administration of calcium levelsfor individuals who are already consuming calcium for other medical symptoms.” Studies have shown that in the U.S. almost 50% of men and 65% of women frequently use calcium supplements—which additionally build strong teeth and bones—in order toavoid and cure osteoporosis. The general recommended level of calcium is 1000 Mg for people aged 50 Years and 1200 Mg for people older than 50 Years.

Recently, the NEI was in news for illuminating imaging techniquethat displays thelong-lived outlines in cells of the eye. The NEI researchers have found cells of the retinal pigment epithelium(RPE) create rare patterns that can be used to track changes in this vital layer of tissue located at the backside of the eye. With a help of collaboration between a fluorescent dye and adaptive optics imaging, the scientists used the RPE outlines to trackeach and every cell in the healthy people dealing with retinal disease.
