Free radicals cause alterations in the immune system. If we add to this the damage to cells, cause diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
Free radicals oxidize LDL-cholesterol, bad cholesterol in blood, causing it to be deposited in blood vessels and form plaques and thrombi that can lead to a heart attack. Antioxidants, by preventing the oxidation of cholesterol, keep arteries clear.
Free radicals from exposure to ultraviolet radiation in sunlight, cigarette smoke, environmental pollution and chemicals damage the skin tissue.
Oxidative stress causes DNA damage in cells, altering their rate of growth and reproduction and becomes cancerous, so that they initiate the development of tumors.
In some types of cancer antioxidants are capable of reversing the damage already done.
