Other major pathologies that may involve free radicals include neurological disorders and cataracts. Neural tissue may be particularly susceptible to oxidative damage because it receives a disproportionately large percentage of oxygen and it has a high concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids which are highly prone to oxidation (Ames et al, 1993). Gemma et al (2002) found that in laboratory conditions, antioxidants and diets supplemented with foods high in oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) reverse age-related decreases in cerebellar (brain) functions. They found that Spirulina reversed this effect. Apple (a food with intermediate ORAC) had an intermediate effect on cerebellar physiology, and cucumber (low ORAC) had no effect, indicating that the reversal of certain brain function decreases might be related to the ORAC dose.
