ABSTRACT
The article provides information on several studies which examined the link between vitamin supplements and cataract development. According to a study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology, long-term use of vitamin E may slow the development of cataracts. Meanwhile, a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, showed that a high intake of both linoleic acid and fatty acid may increase cataract risk.
