You've misread the article Chris,
Most antioxidants will be found in fresh fruit and veg (as it says) but this just suggests some other foods the don't fall into this category.
I get plenty of lentils but not much of the other stuff! Still I do eat plenty of fruit and veg so I hope I am covered. Not nice to think of those bloody free radicals ruining my temple .
Thanks for the article.
