Why is it that every time a “study” condemning some food choice or other is promoted on network television, Walter Willett’s name comes up? This time it’s your eyes that are supposedly in danger, according to Harvard’s Willett and his colleagues. They claim that increased consumption of fatty snack foods more than doubles the risk for macular degeneration
in adults over 55. The last time we heard the warning “don’t do that – you’ll go blind!” it had nothing to do with our food choices.
