I try to share as much health related information that I find as possible and one of these days I’m going to get around to actually practicing what the experts preach, one of these days. This new study is something I could see myself using as motivation. Because one day it just might help me to see!

WebMD.com reports that research at the University of California, Los Angeles showing that the most physically active folks were 73 percent less likely to develop glaucoma than the least active individuals.  We get the heart health and the other associated benefits of exercise but eye health? Who knew?

For each 10-minute increase in moderate to vigorous physical activity a week, the risk of glaucoma fell by 25 percent. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. It is most common in people older than 40.
