In California scientists have found a completely natural way of melting cataracts with a natural steroid.
This natural steroid is known as lanosterol, it will melt cataracts and also stop it from reoccurring.
All it takes in melting cataracts with this natural solution is to use it as an eye drop.
It has proven to be effective in melting mild cataracts. In China scientists tried out this treatment on children that had hereditary cataracts.
What was discovered is that these children had a mutation which prevented their lanosterol production.
It was seen that this mutation was not observed in their parents and scientists believe that the steroids are actually vital in cataracts formation.
Experimentation involved testing the lanosterol steroid on live dogs and rabbits as well as on human lenses that were provided via medical donation.
The outcome of the experiments is that lanosterol steroid will reduce the size of cataracts.
The way cataracts occur is by a proliferation of protein in a person’s lens and blocking out light.
While cataracts is proven to be a hereditary condition it can also occur in old age.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have stated that cataracts is one of the major causes of blindness in the world and it is seen as the number one cause of blindness in America.
A surgical operation is regarded as the most competent way to remove cataracts. The clouded lens is removed and then replaced with an artificial one.
It is believed by scientists that the steroid – lanosterol will block out the accumulation of protein and this is how scientists think the steroid works.
It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more than 50 million Americans with cataracts problem.
It is believed that very soon human tests will be conducted due to the promising results from experimentation on animals.
