Avoid Oil Home Remedy for Cataracts
In the April 2005 issue of the American Journal Of Clinical Nutrition, an article titled Dietary Fat Intake and Early Age Related Lens Opacities by Minyi Lu, it was reported: “High intake of the 18-carbon polyunsaturated fatty acids linoleic acid and linolenic acid may increase the risk of age-related nuclear opacity.” This study looked at the eating habits of 444 women (aged from 54 to 73 years) comparing their diets to the discovery of cataracts. 55.5% of these women were found to have cataracts. It was demonstrated that an increase in cataracts was associated with intake of a variety of vegetable fats as well is mayonnaise and creamy salad dressings which are also high in vegetable oils. The formation of cataracts is the number one cause of blindness around the globe today and no one seems to know why.
The most significant sources of linoleic acid (omega-6 fats) are cottonseed, soybean, corn and sunflower oil which can be purchased as pure liquids in bottles for cooking and also as ingredients found in most processed foods. Linolenic acid (omega-3 fats) can be found in large volume in flaxseed, canola and soybean oils. Plants, but not animals, synthesize both of these fats and when eaten as part of the plant they are protected safely by plant chemicals, fibers, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. However, when these oils are extracted from the plants they are very toxic. With the incidence of cataracts, these oils are absorbed into the lens of the eye, and when oxidation occurs the lens suffers oxidative damage which leads to the visual impairment and clouding we know as cataracts. In order to avoid cataracts, it is also necessary to abstain from cows milk and all dairy products because lactose, the sugar in milk, is changed into galactose which is well understood to cause damage to the lens of the eye and significant studies show that heavy drinking of milk causes cataracts. Cataracts are not the only reason to avoid eating processed vegetable oils and these include immune system suppression, excess bleeding, type-two diabetes and obesity. These oils are also well established as a cause of cancer. This article was extracted from an article by Dr. John McDougall, MD. You can read the original article as well as a list of studies that support the information presented here by doing a search for “McDougall Cataracts.”
