Dr. Bruce Ames,
one of the world's
foremost free radical
the DNA in
each one of the
trillions of cells in
your body receives
10,000 hits a day
by free radicals.
This is the type of
damage that leads
to mutations. No wonder cancer increasing!
Ralph Golan, M.D. states, "Determining what substances provide the most optimal antioxidant capabilities and making
those nutrients available to the public must be first and foremost in our quest for health and disease prevention."
Free radicals are unstable
atoms that are short the number of electrons they need to be stable. We might say that they are hungry for more
In order to satisfy
this hunger, they raid the cells in your body and cause irreparable damage
in the process.
Where do free radicals come from?
They are in every breath you take, every glass of water you drink, and every bite of
food you eat.
They abound in cigarette
smoke, and other air, water, and food pollutants.
They are even created by
our food preparation (by grilling fatty meat for example).
They are produced by infection,
inflammation and, believe it or not, exercise.
it looks like we can't avoid them, so....
