Eye and Nutrition / Edition 1

Find the recipes for healthy eyes within the pages of The Eye and Nutrition by Dr. Lucio Buratto. A healthy diet is fundamentally important for the body in general and for good vision in particular. Like every other structure in the body, the eye must be nourished with the correct nutrients and in the correct amounts, in order to perform optimally. A healthy diet can also reduce the appearance of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, as well as contribute to the prevention of many ocular diseases. With gorgeous photos, The Eye and Nutrition is a unique book that provides scientific information along with culinary recipes to produce an interesting mixture of science and excellent cuisine. The first and second parts of this engaging book by Dr. Lucio Buratto contain a detailed description of the optimal diet for the eye, metabolism of the eye, and an analysis of the basic nutrients for good vision. The third part of The Eye and Nutrition is a series of delicious recipes that will provide the eye with all the nutrients and micronutrients it requires. The Eye and Nutrition is a delectable book to have on one's coffee table, by your side in the kitchen, to give as a gift, and in waiting rooms.
