The scientists have made a startling announcement: antioxidants can be the cause of sterility. The reason is that nowadays these substances are being added everywhere: into food products, beverages and even into make-up. However, the final impact of antioxidants on the human organism has not been studied yet. The most widespread antioxidants are well-known to people vitamins C and E.
The scientists’ opinions vary as to the question of useful effect of the antioxidants on the process of conception. A recent experiment has proved that antioxidants reduce ovulation. In the course of the study, the scientists added antioxidants in the ovaries of laboratory mice, and as a result, the ovaries produced too few ovules, which in its turn would reduce the probability of conception significantly.
