    Numbers Game: Answer

    cataract_lRecent research from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals’ Follow-Up Study indicates that, diabetes aside, obese individuals (BMI > 30) have a 36 percent higher risk of developing cataracts than individuals with BMIs between 18 and 23.

    Researchers attribute this heightened risk to the increased glucose intolerance — and insulin resistance — caused by excess weight.

    Other studies have also concluded that obesity concentrated in the abdominal area (seen more commonly among men) is a higher risk factor for cataract development than excess weight that is mainly distributed in the hips and thighs.
