25 Foods That Damage and Protect Your Eyes
It’s commonly believed that as people get older their eyesight inevitably gets worse. This is technically true, but a healthy lifestyle can significantly delay the development of eye health problems.
Some common age-related eye conditions include glaucoma, dry eyes, age-related macular degeneration — which is a leading cause of blindness — and cataracts.
Many factors affect the eyes — ultraviolet exposure, radiation, some medications. But the single worst thing you can do to cause lasting damage to your eyes is smoke, according to Dr. Scott. B. Sheren, chair of the department of ophthalmology at ProHEALTHcare. An unhealthy diet is second.
“You want to avoid bad stuff like saturated and trans fats, which cause oxidative stress on the body, and want to replace them with polyunsaturated fats, omega-3s, and plant-based foods,” he noted. “It’s all about removing the garbage and adding the good stuff.”
Some foods, including eggs and supplements, are controversial topics when it comes to eye health — often with inconsistent scientific evidence of their health benefits. But there is a consensus around other foods — here are 29 healthy eating habits that will change your life.

Dow loses perch at 29,000 and briefly turns negative as report says China tariffs will remain until after 2020 election
U.S. stock indexes Tuesday late-afternoon were losing steam and turning negative on the heels of a report that tariffs on Chinese goods would remain in place until after the 2020 presidential election. Bloomberg News reported that any move to reduce Chinese tariffs will hinge on the second-largest economy’s "compliance with the terms of a phase-one trade accord, wrote Bloomberg News, citing people familiar with the matter. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.25% was off up 58 points, or 0.2%, at 28,970, but had hit an intraday peak at 29,054 and a low at 28,872, while the S&P 500 index SPX, -0.02% was down 0.3% at 3,286 and the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -0.02% was off 0.1% at 9,267. The report on Sino-American trade relations comes as delegates from Beijing have traveled to Washington to sign a preliminary trade pact with the U.S., potentially paving the way for a detente between the world’s largest economies, which has been a major headwind for the markets. Market participants make the case that despite the news, there had been no previous details about an elimination of tariffs as a part of a phase-one agreement.
UTA-Backed Klutch Sports Group To Tackle Football With Revolution Agency Buy
Klutch Sports Group, the Rich Paul-founded sports agency in which UTA acquired a significant stake over the summer, has made its first big deal. It has acquired Revolution Sports Agency, one of football’s leading rep agencies, a move that will expand its focus into that sport to compliment a powerhouse basketball business that includes repping NBA stars LeBron James, Anthony Davis, John Wall and Ben Simmons.
No terms of the deal were disclosed, but Revolution founder and CEO Damarius Bilbo will lead Klutch Sport Group’s football division and report to Paul, who is Klutch’s CEO and Head of UTA Sports. That division was founded when UTA brought Klutch into the fold in July.
Revolution features a roster of NFL clients including Jarvis Landry, Xavien Howard, Melvin Gordon, Alvin Kamara, Jordan Jenkins, T.J. Jones, Danny Johnson, Ty Montgomery, Ian Thomas, Justin Bethel, Xavier Woods, Hakeem Butler, Duke Dawson, Rasul Douglas, Chuma Edoga and Michael Pierce. It recently closed a deal for Cleveland’s Landry, making him the third-highest paid active NFL wide receiver.
Klutch had recently expanded its football roster to include 2020 draft players.
UTA’s stake in Klutch gives the latter’s clients access to the agency’s network of entertainment, media and business opportunities.
