 10percent lower risk of cataracts from running and cycling


Age-related cataract is one of the most common causes of vision impairment and blindness in the world. About 13 million people around the world are blind due to age-related cataract. 95% of cataracts are age-related, especially after the age of 40, the prevalence of age-related cataracts is high.

The study found that people who exercise regularly, such as running, walking or cycling, had a 10% lower risk of age-related cataracts. Dr. Ming Li, an epidemiologist at the University of South Australia, said that physical activity reduces oxidative stress in the eyes by inhibiting lipid degradation that causes cell damage. At present, there is no accurate answer about the causes of age-related cataract. Free radical damage, insulin resistance, unhealthy lipid (such as cholesterol and triglyceride) content, etc., will increase the risk of age-related cataract. We know that exercise can increase the activity of antioxidant enzymes, which has various benefits, including limiting eye infections and inflammation, Dr. Mingli said Running is usually carried out outdoors, and long-term sun exposure to the eyes will increase the risk of cataract, so when running outdoors, you should protect your eyes to avoid sun exposure.
