Exercise may protect women from AMD
Investigators assessed the influence of vigorous exercise on the incidence of AMD in patients enrolled in a single, large cohort study. After controlling for common AMD risk factors, the authors found that women who exercised 3 times or more a week had a 22% decreased risk of having intermediate AMD. No protective effect was seen in men (interesting??). British Journal of Ophthalmology, October 2016
