The role of egg consumption in the risk of stroke and coronary heart disease has come under scrutiny over many years. Since eggs are a major source of dietary cholesterol, … Continue Reading Eating one egg per day associated with a 12% reduced risk of stroke.
A major hallmark of aging, and a key driver for the onset of age-related pathophysiologies across multiple species, including primates, is the disruption of cellular redox homeostatic mechanisms that protect … Continue Reading Boosting levels of known antioxidant may help resist age-related decline.
There is well-established evidence that free radicals can cause cancer so researchers had assumed that antioxidants, which destroy them, provide protection against the disease. Found in many nutritional supplements, antioxidants … Continue Reading Study shows antioxidants speed-up the metastasis of malignant melanoma.
