When Johanna Seddon Talks, People Listen

I have been following the research of Johanna Seddon for many years. She attended Tufts New England Medical Center for her ophthalmology residency and then became the first ophthalmologist to obtain a graduate degree in epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Researcher, Epidemiologist, Retina Specialist

Her research involves the prevention of eye diseases and the discovery of links between macular degeneration and nutrition. In her ophthalmology career she specialized as a retina specialist with a large percentage of her patients having macular degeneration.

She is a professor of ophthalmology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, the Director of Retina, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences and the Director of the Macular Degeneration Center of Excellence.

Her bio in her eye healthy nutrition book states, "Her discoveries of modifiable factors for age-related eye diseases include the beneficial effects of the antioxidant nutrients lutein and zeaxanthin, as well as anti-inflammatory foods containing omega-3 fatty acids..."

So that's why, when Johanna Seddon talks, I listen.

She is the co-author along with chef Jennifer Trainer Thompson, of the book Eat Right for Your Sight: Simple, Tasty Recipes that Help Reduce the Risk of Vision Loss from Macular Degeneration.

The recipes are indeed simple and not difficult to make. Learn about the importance of proper combining of foods to maximize nutrient absorption and maximize your food intake to benefit your eyes:
