AMD and Trans Fats

A study of 6,734 participants, as reported in Archives of Ophthalmology, showed that late AMD (age related macular degeneration) risk was higher in people who ate a lot of trans-unsaturated fats. Fatty acids and olive oil seemed to reduce the risk of AMD. Fish, butter, and margarine did not show significant associations with AMD.
