Free Radicals And Our Health – When we hear the word ‘radical‘, most of us get nervous – and understandably so, as radicalism is not typically thought of as a good thing! This applies to more than just politics – within the body, free radicals are responsible for doing a lot of damage. Let’s explore what they are, what they’re doing and how to fight them off.

This high sugar meal just undid all that healing and maybe set you back further.
