The study, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, found that in mice this acid prevented retinal degeneration.

这个研究发布在农业和食品化学杂志,表明这种酸老鼠可起到预防视网膜病变的作用。


Chang Y. Lee, a professor of food science and the study's senior author said: 'The retina is a thin tissue layer on the inside, back wall of the eye with millions of light-sensitive cells and other nerve cells that receive and organise visual information.

 Chang Y. Lee,食物科学和研究的高级作者教授,说:视网膜是一种薄的内部组织层,眼睛的后壁还有数以百万计的感光细胞和其他神经细胞接收和整理视觉信息。


'It is also one of the most metabolically active tissues, demanding high levels of oxygen and making it prone to oxidative stress.

 它也是最具有代谢活性的组织之一,要求高浓度的氧,使之容易产生氧化应激。【Google】


'The lack of oxygen and production of free radicals leads to tissue damage and loss of sight.'

 氧的缺乏和自由基的生产导致组织损伤和失明。


He added: 'The study is important in understanding functional foods, that is, natural foods that provide beneficial health effects.

他强调:这个研究的重点在于了解食物的作用,就是天然食物提供有益的健康效应。


'Coffee is the most popular drink in the world, and we are understanding what benefit we can get from that.'
