Why, universe, can’t sour patch kids be consider healthy?

A study suggests there is a link between a healthy diet and age-related cataracts. Researchers found differences between the gut bacteria of people that ate a healthy diet and those that didn’t. After adjusting for several factors, they found “a healthy diet protects against cataract formation, possibly through antioxidant vitamins, but we do not know exactly how this happens”. The study suggests that cataract risk may be influenced by systemic factors mediated by gut bacteria.
Even though the authors aren’t exactly sure why this happens, that “apple a day” saying is probably true. (via)
