Dr. Whitaker’s Formula to Prevent Cataracts

"Since free radical damage is the key mechanism in the development of cataracts, it makes sense that increased levels of antioxidants would protect against them, and the research bears this out. Several studies involving thousands of people have found that long term use of multivitamins, vitamins A, B-complex, C, and E, and carotenoids (particularly lutein and zeaxanthin) reduces risk of cataracts."

And of course, green leafy vegetables including broccoli, tomatoes, melons, and citrus fruits are beneficial.
