 Eating Too Much Red Meat Increases Risk of 'Going Blind'
Eating too much red meat can increase the risk of going blind, suggests a new study.

A study found people who munch more than ten portions of beef, lamb or pork a week are 50 per cent more likely to lose their sight than those who don't.

Yet eating chicken three times a week can cut the risk by half, reports the Mirror.

The findings are published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
