According to the scientists from the University of Scranton, the diet should include a variety of sources of antioxidants. The researchers believe that antioxidants are worth being obtained not only from vegetables and fruits.
For example, whole grain pasta contains three times more antioxidants than other varieties of pasta. So it is no less useful than vegetables. Popcorn contains 4 times more polyphenols, struggling with cancer, than fruit.
Also, the doctors underline the benefits of eggs. They contain the antioxidant called lutein, which protects the eyes from macular degeneration and cataracts. The researchers from Tufts Center have found that lutein from eggs is absorbed 3 times better than that found in spinach.
Antioxidant vitamin E (carotenoids and lutein) can be found in organic milk (their content in milk is increased by 40-50%).
Instead of sugar, the scientists from the Technological University of Virginia encourage everyone to use natural substitutes of sweeteners, such as honey. Its most useful kind, in their opinion, is buckwheat honey.
