The Silent Damage
Do you know that the oxygen you consume could be bad for you?
When oxygen is released into your body it produces Active Oxygen known as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) or Free Radical Oxygen. In small amounts, free radicals are helpful to protect your body from germs, bacteria and viruses. But when there is excess, a state called oxidative stress, free radicals will damage cells, DNA and RNA in the body. This damage causes ageing and diseases in the body. Research has proven that 90% of the illnesses today are caused by harmful free radicals. Some of these damages occur silently over a long term and too often their effects discovered too late.
