by Kelley Herring on December 6, 2012

If you have diabetes, you probably know that your vision is at risk. The good news is that a simple change may help save your sight, according to new research.

A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry examined the potential for green and black tea to prevent cataracts in people with diabetes.

For 3 months, green and black tea were given to subjects with chemically-induced diabetes. After the study period, researchers examined the subjects and found that both green tea and black tea prevented diabetic cataracts.
