Oxygen is the key to various processes in the human body. Unfortunately, these processes produce oxidants, also know as free radicals. The body can also absorb oxidants from outside sources such as exposure to sunlight, eating unhealthy foods, smoking cigarettes, consuming alcohol, and pollution. Stress can also produce free radicals. What happens in the body is very similar to the rusting of iron. The free radicals damage the cells by breaking them down.
Oxidative stress has been tied to the cause of different forms of cancer, heart disease, muscular degeneration, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and cataracts.
When you have been diagnosed with cancer, you not only have the natural metabolic reactions, there is all the debilitating processes that happen with the disease. We have to educate ourselves on how to achieve optimal health, no matter what our body is bombarded with.
The best way to keep your body strong, ready to destroy the free radicals, is to have antioxidants present in your system. Your body naturally produces some antioxidant enzymes like Catalase. External consumption is achieved by eating a diet that is well balanced with healthy food choices from all food groups. The more colorful the better and eaten in the raw state or lightly steamed is best.
Exactly what are antioxidants? They are vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that nurture the human cells by reducing the harmful effects of the oxidants by neutralizing them, and repairing the damage they have done to the cells.
These molecules that are so beneficial to our good health are food rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, phytochemical and bata-carotene. This can usually be achieved by shopping down the produce aisles for fresh fruits and vegetables. Zinc and selenium, found in red meats, seafood, whole grains, dairy products, are two other antioxidants that may help boost immunity.
There are times that fresh fruits and vegetables may not be available in abundance or too costly. This is when we have to bridge the gaps in our diet with supplementation.
Dr Richard Cutler, former director of the National Institute of Aging in Washington, very appropriately said “the amount of antioxidants in your body is directly proportional to how long you will live.”

Being a thyroid cancer survivor, I have taken the time to study what may have been the cause of this disease and how I can repair my body.

Lunch with James Watson today: “If I cure cancer, I should become a saint.”
Image by jurvetson “I started thinking like an adult from age 11. One thing my family tree had in common, we were all very ambitious.” “Why do athletes get ALS? Exercise releases oxidants which cause neurodegeneration. Oxidants are also painkillers. This is why it hurts after you play tennis. Antioxidants increase your risk of cancer. Humans are one of only three mammals that don’t make Vitamin C. The cure for cancer might be vitamin C and vitamin K. Vitamin E is very bad.” I asked him if he is more interested in with chemistry than genetics and the information systems of biology? “It’s all chemistry. The structure of DNA was discovered by two people who did not know chemistry. At one point we were stuck, and a chemist, Jerry Donohue, who was a 100% American slob in blue jeans, pointed out that we had the hydrogen bonds in the wrong place. He corrected us, and we got the structure of DNA the next day. I suppose he should have shared the Nobel prize with us. You know, I never took a hard chemistry course, just the chemistry course for nurses. I was going to be a bird watcher. My Dad was an obsessive ornithologist.” What do you think of the project by Revive & Restore to bring the passenger pigeon back from extinction? After a brief pause and a subtle wince: “I don’t like pigeons. There’s something about the mourning dove that’s not appealing.” On his friendship with Feynman: “I was at Caltech from 53 to 55 and Feynman had just arrived. He did some experiments to compete with Crick and Brenner and he needed my help.” Did Feynman have an intuition for genetics like he did for physics? “No, he had no intuition for genetics” “FDR and Lincoln had moral authority. Coolidge and Hoover did not. I am not so sure about Bill Clinton.” “There are women who force you to cheat. Luckily, I am not married to one.” “Jonas Salk died without moral authority. You have to show humility.” “There’s an evolutionary imperative to have ideas.”
