Oxygen radicals are everywhere because we live in an atmosphere that contains oxygen. Oxidation stress, therefore, is unavoidable – it is a consequence of living. There is an increasing body of evidence that oxidative stress is linked to many diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, neurological disorders (ex. Parkinson’s disease), cataracts, and arthritis. One of our strongest defences is to eat foods containing natural antioxidants. The FDA has also stated that a person should up their levels of antioxidants to over 7000 ORAC value per day to help prevent cell damage, anti-aging, cancer and other diseases.
