Despite the fact that every one of us wishes to live longer and healthier, we are exposed to sources of harmful free radicals. These oxidative radicals cause chronic diseases such as heart attacks, stroke, diabetes and cancer, which in turn lead to premature death.

Their sources include X-rays, ozone radiation, cigarette smoking, air pollutants and industrial chemicals.

Inorder to eliminate the adverse effects of these free radicals, a person should eat Potatoes.

The Potatoes are not only rich in nutrients but also are packed with healing properties due to their richness in antioxidants. These substances neutralise the harmful effects of these free radicals, and prevent further formation of these harmful free radicals. The antioxidants found in potatoes include flavonoids, carotenoids and phenolic acids. To enjoy the maximum healing effect of this nutritious food, you should eat it wholly, with its skin.
