Indeed, Wikipedia suggests, "The immune system uses the lethal effects of oxidants by making production of oxidizing species a central part of its mechanism of killing pathogens; with activated phagocytes producing both ROS and reactive nitrogen species. These include superoxide (•O₂-)2, nitric oxide (•NO) and their particularly reactive product, peroxynitrite (ONOO-)." Reply migraine516 says: December 11, 2013 at 4:00 pm I cherish your videos.

Reply Ernie Blenkinsop says: December 12, 2013 at 5:39 am This could mean that reducing one's stress from all causes is the way to go, don't eat food that causes metabolic stress, don't go hungry, don't get dehydrated, don't lack sleep, don't over-do the exercise, don't have a stressful job, don't get stressed!

We always hear about anti-oxidants, but very little about the what or why of anti-oxidants. How about some information on what an oxidant related disease is and how it works?
