Basic Mechanisms of the Disease Process
We live in a remarkably polluted environment. These pollutants can combine with the oxygen species known as free radicals. These free radicals seek to neutralize their imbalanced electrical charge by attacking weaker molecules-and DNA is a great target. Chromosomes have their own defensive system to deal with certain levels of free radical attack, but the burdens of modern life can overwhelm these defenses.
