Dr Ross Walker Noted Australian Cardiologist says 90% of the major diseases seen in modern society are related to free radical attack on our body.
A free radical is the by-product of the reaction of many common chemicals and poisons with oxygen. This creates an unstable chemical that travels around the body, ripping out electrons and setting you up for many common diseases that afflict our modern society.
The ingestion of saturated fat, refined sugars, the use of cigarette smoke, exposure to pollution and the numerous day-to-day chemicals either in our foods or applied to our body in some form, not to mention cosmic radiation and other sources of radiation, are potent generators of free radicals.
The only methods available to us to reduce this free radical attack on our bodies are to markedly reduce our exposure to these chemicals and to load ourselves to the eyeballs with antioxidants. In reducing our exposure to chemicals that generate free radicals, we should not only look at the obvious sources, such as the food we eat and the air we breath, but also the many products we take for granted when we apply them to our body. This includes soaps, deodorants, hair and skin products. We should always be striving to use the more natural products. The second way to neutralise free radicals, however, is the use of antioxidants.
