Free radicals – we know the name, but what exactly are they, and why do you need to protect yourself against them?
Single Electrons Seeking Partners
First, a brief science bit. Free radicals are atoms, but not healthy, stable ones. Atoms are surrounded by layers – known as shells – of orbiting electrons. If the atom’s outermost shell has one or more unpaired electrons in the outer shell, it sets out on a laser-focused mission to bond with another atom.
The free radical molecule uses the second atom’s electrons to ‘complete’ its outer shell. It acts fast, bonding with the other atom and thus stabilizing itself. But at what cost?
Summer is right around the corner, so you are probably hearing a lot of advice and questions about potential dieting and fitness ideas. Growing extremely popular is one of the latest dieting trends: the keto diet.
Before you get started on the keto diet, though, know that it is harder than most of the other diets out there and that there are a few things that you should expect.

Free Radicals might sound like the kind of band name you and your buddy, that guy with the keyboard and the bad perm, might have chosen back in the 80’s.
It’s true to say that free radicals sound a lot cooler than they really are. Existing virtually everywhere in the modern world, free radicals are impossible to avoid. To labor the 80’s band theme again, like an aging rock star who has lived a wild and toxic life on the road: free radicals are unstable, slightly unhinged molecules trying to hook up with a nice, calming electron to stabilize them and settle down with.
Water is big news. Of course it is, it’s a massive part of our lives. We depend on it for life itself and yet we’re all guilty of wasting it from time to time. So how did we become so complacent about …
