For those of you who have believed in antioxidants for anti-aging purposes, or to treat heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteopenia, osteoporosis and chronic hepatitis, a note of caution given the potential damage to DNA.
On the good news side, the ability to damage DNA and kill cells has potential for cancer treatment, particularly as, unlike chemo, would not lead to mutations within the cancer cell that increase resistance.
Needless to say, far from clinical trials. Quote:
“This is what’s cool about biology,” Dr. Austin said. “Just when we think we understand something, it turns out to be more complex than we thought.”
