The Air We Breathe Is Killing Us

" To many, it might seem odd that oxygen, the gas that we require for life, can actually cause damage. Oxygen molecules really can do damage to your system. Oxygen is the major source of harmful free radicals. Ironic that life-giving oxygen also causes signs of aging with advancing years. Oxygen free radicals have an unstable, single electron (versus stable, paired electrons) enabling them to chemically alter lipids, proteins, carbohydrates and even DNA. An oxygen free radical "attacks" a biomolecule by "stealing" one electron, thereby changing the "good biomolecule" into a reactive free radical. Continuous creation of biological free radicals damages cells and tissues – leading to the visual signs of aging"
