Parkinsons Disease Protein Pathway Identified

... Oxidative stress is the damage caused to cells by reactive oxygen produced during oxygen metabolism. Although cells have mechanisms in place to protect against oxidative damage, this system can break down in the face of environmental challenges or genetic mutations. The Emory researchers found that the m...

Tomatoes are Not So Effective in Preventing Prostate Cancer

...Antioxidants protect against free radicals, highly reactive atoms and molecules that can damage DNA and other important molecules in the cell. Since free radical damage increases with age, there has been a long-held suspicion in the scientific community that free radical damage could increase the risk of pros...
