How Fly Are Antioxidants?
City:Lasalle, QC
School:Académie Royal West
Abstract:Drosophila melanogaster were exposed to antioxidants to determine the effects on their longevity and fertility. The variables were: form of antioxidant (Acai fruit vs Luteolin supplement), the concentration of antioxidant, gender, and age. It was discovered that exposure to antioxidants is harmful to fruit fly longevity. Also, antioxidants did not improve young fly fertility significantly. In certain cases, antioxidants doubled the fertility of older flies.
