Many cancers have adapted to cope with high levels of immune system-produced free radicals, also referred to as reactive oxygen species, by overproducing antioxidant proteins. One of these proteins, superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1), isShow More Summary
Sarah Thebarge thinks those awkward side-arm hugs might be doing way more harm than good.
The aging process in the human body is greatly influenced by the action of free radicals (byproducts of our own metabolism), but can be slowed down without the need to consume special dietary supplements if the HGF protein production, naturally found in the liver, is increased.
Antioxidants are a commonly promoted feature of health foods and supplements. They’re portrayed as the good forces that fight free radicals – nasty molecules causing damage thought to hasten ageing and cause chronic diseases. The simple...Show More Summary
When we got our hands on Show Beauty's New Divine Thickening Mist, we became insta-fans. This stuff inflates each and every strand on your head to some semblance of thickness, plus it protects from free radicals and UV with an awesome blend of minerals. Show More Summary
(John Hinderaker) It may be gangster government, but if so, it’s the gang that can’t shoot straight. I am not sure whether they created this graphic, but I got it from Free Radical Network, via Twitchy: Heh.
Mutations in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are at the center of the mitochondrial free radical theory of aging. Every cell has its herd of bacteria-like mitochondria, toiling to generate chemical energy stores and emitting reactive free radicals as a result of this activity. Show More Summary
The data that will eventually make up a complete understanding of how aging progresses in an entire organism - with full descriptions of the relevant processes running all the way down to cells, sub-cellular components such as mitochondria, and interactions between proteins - is still very early in the game of assembly.

Early this year, TimeSplitters fans got some decent news when it was announced that Crytek, owner of TimeSplitters developer Free Radical, was okaying a venture by fans and some former Free Radical employees to mash up the original games into a new, multiplayer-focused shooter, TimeSplitters Rewind.

Damaging reactive oxygen species (ROS) and other free radicals are generated within your cells, largely as a result of the day to day operations of mitochondria, the power plants of the cell that produce chemical energy stores used by cellular processes. Show More Summary
One future path for medical technology is to augment the internal functions of our cells with artificial versions of natural organelles, membrane-enclosed sacks of protein machinery that do some form of useful work - such as produce therapeutic proteins, or remove harmful waste products that natural organelles struggle with. Show More Summary
Researchers have successfully developed artificial organelles that are able to support the reduction of toxic oxygen compounds. This opens up new ways in the development of novel drugs that can influence pathological states directly inside the cell.
Here are six food groups that could help protect you against the damaging rays of the sun. These compounds help fight free radicals, a nasty set of atoms or molecules that contribute to annoying problems like premature aging and can Continue reading ?
It's a vicious cycle that robs people with diabetes of their vision. The hallmark high glucose of the disease causes inflammation that produces free radicals that cause inflammation that produces more free radicals, explains Dr. Manuela Bartoli, vision scientist at the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University.

OXYS rats are a laboratory breed engineered to show accelerated aging. They exhibit higher levels of oxidative free radicals than other rats, and degenerate more rapidly. Animal lineages are engineered this way to reduce the cost and duration of exploratory studies of aging or specific conditions of aging. Show More Summary
Summer = exfoliation. Often ladies. I exfoliate to keep my skin looking dewy and fresh. I’m outside more in the summer and with pollution, free radicals, and DC dirt my skin needs all the help it can get. Renée Rouleau Triple Berry Smoothing Peel is part of my summer beauty routine. I find the peel [...]
...when people take large doses of antioxidants in the form of supplemental vitamins, the balance between free radical production and destruction might tip too much in one direction, causing an unnatural state where the immune system is less able to kill harmful invaders. Show More Summary
LindyGirl asks…Are products like Marula Oil a good source of antioxidants to use daily under sunscreen (physical block – zinc oxide – spf 30) to help fight free radicals and, possibly, infrared rays? Macula Oil is supposed to have vitamins C and E. Or would it be best to just stick with the vitamin C&E [...]
