Also foods rich in antioxidants such as cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, garlic, tomatoes would delay in the progression of ailments of the eye linked with advanced age like macular degeneration, glaucoma.

Another sense is hearing which is burdened with iPods, music gadgets and sound pollution of the city traffic, industries.
