Antioxidants counteract pollutants by reducing oxidative stress. Christina Loh, our Head of Nursing, addresses health risks from pollutant exposure, highlighting vulnerable populations and the role of antioxidants as guardians. Mary-ann Chiam, our Senior Principal Dietitian, emphasises the importance of an antioxidant-rich diet for respiratory and cardiovascular health.
Broader health concerns from pollution include neurological, reproductive, child, skin health, immune function, endocrine disruption, and cancer risk. Recommendations include advocating for clean air, minimising exposure, and seeking medical advice for pollution-related health issues.
