What about exercise? What’s the difference between “wet” and “dry” AMD? Why are free radicals such a problem for the eye? What role does DHA play in eye health? How do lutein and zeaxanthin act like “internal sunglasses” in the eyes? What are main dietary sources of lutein and zeaxanthin? What are some of the controversies in eye research? What nutrients at what doses should the ideal eye supplement contain? Are additional benefits to be had from the addition of taurine, l-carnitine, n-acetylcysteine (NAC), quercetin, or sulforaphane?
