Intakes of Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Other Carotenoids and Age-Related Macular Degeneration During 2 Decades of Prospective Follow-up.
 

Author(s): Juan Wu, Eunyoung Cho, Walter C Willett, Srinivas M Sastry, Debra A Schaumberg

Journal: JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015 Dec;133(12):1415-24.

 

Despite strong biological plausibility, evidence from epidemiologic studies and clinical trials on the relations between intakes of lutein and zeaxanthin and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) has been inconsistent. The roles of other carotenoids are less thoroughly investigated.
