Toxicological studies have revealed that certain chemical pesticides and chlorine could cause abnormal changes in the CNS of animal models. These chemicals being the uncouplers of oxidative phosphorylation may destabilize the mitochondrial functions. In recent years the cancer survivors were reported to exhibit cognitive impairment and dementia. Phytochemical compounds have been documented to reinstate the brain functions to normalcy, in animal models. Hence phytochemicals may be of use in reinstating the brain functions in cancer survivors suffering dementia/cognitive memory loss.
