Free Radicals Damage Our Cells and Lead to Aging and Disease Relatively little is known about free radicals and how they affect human health but they are linked to age-related diseases, gray hair, and wrinkles. Scientists are trying to understand this phenomenon to help prevent free radicals from making people sick. Free radicals are defined as atoms that are unstable. If the outer shell of an atom is missing an electron it will try to steal one by bonding with another atom. Oxidative stress is a process where oxygen molecules split into atoms with missing electrons that become free radicals. They then try to bond with other molecules or atoms in the body and can damage cells leading to a host of diseases and symptoms of aging.

The theory of free radicals is that they accumulate damage on cells over time. As we grow older our bodys lose the ability to remedy these effects thus generating more free radicals causing oxidative stress. This leads to aging and age related diseases. Many studies have linked free radicals to oxidative stress that causes dementia, Alzheimers, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, cataracts, diabetes, Huntingtons disease, Parkinsons, hair loss, gray hair, and wrinkles.
A new theory of free radicals has been focused on the heart of cells called the mitochondria. Experiments on rats seem to confirm that the mitochondria are vulnerable to free radicals. The damage produced only adds more free radicals which accelerate the aging of cells. The buildup of free radicals helps explain why our bodies deteriorate over time, but it is only one of many reasons why we age.

Some people age slower than others and free radical theories help explain this. Some free radicals are produced by our body naturally. However, our lifestyle can add more free radicals into our bodies from these sources:
* smoking
* alcohol consumption
* pesticides
* air pollution
* fried food
