I lead a healthy life style and have no AMD (Age related Macular Degeneration) history in my family, but yet it was calculated that I would have a 20% risk of being affected by AMD by the age of 70. Not a very nice thought. There were a number of simple steps that could reduce the risk by 10% points. That is something worth doing.
AMD is rising rapidly across the globe, it is the leading cause of blindness in industrialized countries.
