New Study Reveals Blindness Will Affect Millions…Permanent Blindness An Epidemic!

Few people realize that macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness for men and women aged 55 and over. It affects more than 10 million people in the U.S. alone — and millions more all over the world. 

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a condition which causes light-sensitive cells in the back of the eye to stop functioning…and this results in severe vision loss. AMD affects the middle part of the visual field, which is needed for driving as well as many other everyday activities.

In January 1997, Dr. Carl Kupfer, then the Director of the National Eye Institute, National Institutes of Health, stated publicly that macular degeneration will soon take on aspects of an epidemic!

Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for Age-Related Macular Degeneration. However, there is a way to drastically slow down the progression of this incurable disease.

The National Eye Institute says there is only one (1) proven way to slow down the progression of Age-Related Macular Degeneration once diagnosed. That 1 way is through vitamin supplementation.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration is a real problem with real consequences when left untreated. A recent study was done at the University of Wisconsin that showed that exercise may reduce the risk of developing AMD.

The study tracked 3,874 men and women (aged 43 to 86) over a 15-year period. The study concluded that those with an active lifestyle were 70% less likely to develop the degenerative eye disease than those with a sedentary lifestyle.

For this reason…

1. It is recommended that you talk to your physician about starting a healthy exercise program — if you are not currently exercising.

2. If you, like many of us, do not exercise regularly — or have not exercised 3-5 times per week over the last 15 years, then it’s even more important that you use a macular degeneration supplement.

The antioxidants that are found in an amazing supplement called Preserve Mac Forte have been proven by the National Eye Institute to slow the progression of Age-Related Macular Degeneration and possibly help prevent blindness.

Although most people don’t believe they’d ever go blind, AMD actually affects so many middle-aged people these days — and it is predicted that an ever-increasing number of individuals will develop the illness every year as more and more “baby boomers” approach, and cross over the threshold to age 55 and beyond.

Dr. Warren Ringold has successfully helped thousands of men and women around the world suffering from AMD. He has recently released a product containing the necessary ingredients, as recommended by the National Eye Institute, to slow the progression of AMD and help reduce the serious risk of permanent blindness.
