Lycoplus could help protect us against diesel fumes

31-May-2017


Many of us who drive diesel cars will be worried that we now know they are very damaging to our health due to the emission of nitrogen oxides – called NOx and especially nitrogen dioxide, NO2Road transport is responsible for about 50% of total emissions of NOx, which means that levels are highest close to busy roads and in urban areas. So those  who drive a diesel car or live in busy areas will be concerned about the damage to our health by diesel emissions.

Scientists have studied ways to capture the NO2 using catalysts. Unfortunately, such ‘catalysts’ get ‘poisoned’, and lose their ability to remove the NO2.

A different approach is to use our diet to ‘quench’ the NO2. Anti-oxidants have many health benefits for humans e.g. quenching damaging oxidising species such as NO2. So, dietary anti-oxidants can protect our cells from NO2. One of the best anti-oxidants is (tomato) lycopene and we have studied lycopene (from Lycoplus) to protect our cells from NO2 damage.
