The Number of Free Radicals You Produce is NOT Steady‏

There are a certain number of free radicals produced when you simply metabolize your food. However, there are many things that increase the number of free radicals you produce:

Excessive Stress
Excessive Exercise
Pollutants in our air, food, and water
Cigarette smoke

Because of our stressful lifestyles, polluted environment, and over- medicated societies, this generation must contend with more free radicals than any previous generation. This leads to a problem known as oxidative stress.
