We've long been told to take our vitamins to stay healthy.
A new government study at the National Eye Institute agrees... it says high doses of vitamins plus the mineral Zinc, can slow and even prevent some cases of vision loss. In the study, patients with macular degeneration, a disease that causes eye cells to break down, were given doses of vitamins "C," "E" and beta- carotene. Those patients were 25 percent less likely to suffer the effects of macular degeneration.
