What causing aging?
As the result of metabolic processes in the body, free radicals can accumulate in various tissues and cause oxidative cell damage. If this cell damage is extensive, it can result in premature aging of many of the organ systems in the body.
Fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants that can prevent the damage done by free radicals.
A number of studies indicate the antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables provide the greatest level of protection from the effects of oxidative stress; thus, help combat cell damage. In addition, research shows those who have a diet rich in antioxidants have a decreased risk of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, as well as degenerative brain and neurological conditions. Further, antioxidants appear to prevent the growth of certain kinds of cancer cells.
