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?
So, we know that greens are good for us and why; but what makes the sunny side of the fruit bowl so nutritious?
Sunny and Scrumptious!
So much of our favorite fresh, delicious produce comes in the glorious colors of the sunrise and sunset. From the cheery, zingy looks of citrus and the warm hue of mango and peaches, to the rich autumnal glow of squash and bright buttery corn — it all looks and tastes great!
What’s in Them?
So what exactly is packed into these brilliantly-colored foods that makes them so good for us?

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.

If you’re among the just-over-half of the population who didn’t make a New Year resolution, then by now you might fall into one of two camps. The first is being oblivious to the whole thing and simply getting on with life without the pressure/pleasure of a self-imposed goal to work towards.
The second camp includes those who look on with a touch of envy at the bright-eyed fervor of those winning at their resolutions. They have a goal. A “thing.” Something to help pass the long, decidedly un-festive January days. Dry January? Veganuary? At this stage of the month, if you haven’t given something up, then you might be feeling a …
Something else has been identified as a potential health hazard in our water. To add to the cocktail of potential contaminants that flow out of taps across America, salt has recently been identified as the latest water worry.
How Our Soil Gets Salty
Increased use of road salt is a major cause, as is mining, fossil-fuel production and the use of some fertilizers. The salt seeps into the ground where excessive sodium dislodges the stable soil minerals such as calcium and potassium, changing the composition of the soil itself.
Of course, whatever is in the soil will end up seeping through to our water supply. The salty water eventually trickles through the layers of …

It’s that time of year again. While Christmas is still far enough away for us to manage to avoid sliding into panic whenever someone mentions the word “tinsel,” it’s close enough for us to be penciling in those holiday gatherings that usually take place during the course of the next few weeks.
