May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- There are conflicting scientific reports on the effectiveness of nutritional antioxidants in preventing or slowing the growth of age related cataracts, despite extensive basic science research indicating that oxidative damage to the human lens is a common underlying etiologic factor in cataractogenesis

Although antioxidants may be part of the body's defense to prevent ARC, environmental contaminants may contribute to cataractogenesis.
Animal studies have shown that chronic Se deficiency or GPx depletion can lead to cataract formation, whereas Se excess can induce prooxidant conditions involved in cataractogenesis (Cai et al.

From 1985 to 1987, he was a post-doctoral associate in the Department of Physics at MIT, studying the biochemistry of cataractogenesis

It has been established in several different animal models, as well as in humans, that a decrease in GSH concentrations may be associated with aging and the pathogenesis of many diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, AIDS, Alzheimer disease, alcoholic liver disease, cataractogenesis
, respiratory distress syndrome, progeria, and Werner syndrome (1-9).
