Antioxidants quench the inflammatory cells produced by diesel pollution, antioxidants are present in the human body in the form of Vitamin C, Glutathione and Urate which quenches the free radicals produced by the pollutants by absorbing the free radicals produced by the stress and pollutants and these antioxidants gets reduced by absorbing the free radicals produced in the body and there by protecting the airways from infection and disease conditions.
