or not, the same thing happens to humans. As we use oxygen to
create energy, we produce a by-product called FREE-RADICALS.
While our cells use oxygen efficiently through the process of
oxidation, it always causes some type of change. In the case of
the apple it simply turns brown and rots. In the case of humans
damaged cells are replaced with new ones. However, about 2% of
our cells will become damaged in the process, turn into
free-radicals, and can start a chain reaction process of harming
free-radical activity has been linked to cancer, heart disease,
Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, and strokes.
Most of the
time our body controls these free-radicals by producing natural
ANTIOXIDANTS. However, today we are all faced with external
toxins in our environment that generate more free-radicals. Air
pollution, cigarette smoke, pesticides, excessive amounts of
alcohol, processed foods, hydrogenated oil, fried and browned
food, and preservatives all contribute to free-radical
generation. Physical and emotional stress are also to blame for
increased free-radicals as well as UV radiation from the sun.
