An Egg a day keeps blindness away
As per a US nutrition researcher, a compound in egg may help in keeping macular degeneration, one of the leading causes of blindness in the world, at bay.
Leutin, a carotenoid is found in leafy vegetables and egg yolk. It is the only carotenoid, which the body concentrates in the macular region of the eye.
Leutin protects the eye against damage from ultraviolet rays as it absorbs the UV rays.
