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 Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences and the Director of the Macular Degeneration Center of Excellence.

Her bio in her eye healthy nutrition book, Eat Right for Your Sight she 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. Find out about the importance of proper food combining to maximize nutrient absorption and how to maximize your nutrient intake to benefit your eyes:
