Doctor Wachler also pointed out that eating “simple carbohydrates”, such as those contained in white bread and pasta are linked to macular degeneration.
He recommended people consume whole grains instead. “Simple carbohydrates, like those found in white bread and pasta, have been linked with a higher chance of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD).”
Studies have shown that having a higher level of blood sugar is also connected with the onset of AMD. That’s because higher levels of blood sugar are associated with widespread inflammation.
“These types of carbs are digested too quickly, causing a spike in blood sugar levels. To avoid this, swap your white bread and pasta for whole-grain versions,” explained Doctor Wachler.
