Q – WHAT IS OXIDATIVE STRESS?
A – Free radicals are dangerous molecules generated in our body from dietary, environmental, and neurological abuse. This produces oxidative stress which shortens our telomeres and so decreasing our life span. Oxidative stress has been linked to more than 200 diseases and is considered a major cause of cellular aging because of DNA damage that occurs.
Q – What are some of the factors that increase oxidative stress?
A – Toxic food (dietary), toxic air & water (environmental), and stress (neurological).
Q – WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO BUY ORGANIC FOODS?
A – They taste better and are higher in nutritional value. More importantly they are free of pesticides and other contaminants like GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) that increase oxidative stress.
Q – WHICH FOODS CONTAIN THE MOST PESTICIDES?
A – Coffee, milk, meats, peaches, apples, bell peppers, celery, strawberries, cherries, lettuce, grapes, carrots, pears, white or red potatoes, and tomatoes so be especially careful to buy these as organic!
Q – WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF CONSUMING PESTICIDES?
A – Pesticides are chemicals designed to kill, control, or repel pests so isn’t it logical that they would also be harmful to humans? Numerous studies have linked them to a number of chronic health problems that include cancer, birth defects, endocrine disruption, asthma, neurological disorders, immune impairment, and free radical build up.
Q – ARE THERE STUDIES LINKING PESTICIDES TO CANCER?
A – There is an extensive body of evidence – particularly for leukemia, brain cancer, sarcomas, breast cancer, and prostate cancer.
Q – CAN ANTIOXIDANTS CANCEL OUT FREE RADICALS?
A – Yes but we can’t get enough from foods alone and even with large doses of vitamin C and other supplemental antioxidants; the free radicals creating oxidative stress keep building up in our cells with every decade of our life.
Q – HOW CAN WE GET RID OF THIS DANGEROUS OXIDATIVE STRESS?
A – With supplements containing phytonutrients.
Q – ARE THERE BLOOD TESTS THAT MEASURE THE AMOUNT OF OXIDATIVE STRESS DAMAGE IN OUR CELLS?
A – T-BARS (Thio Barbituric Acid Reactive Substances) can measure oxidative stress in blood; C-RP (C-Reactive Protein) and LDH (lactic dehyrogenase) are other blood tests that more specifically measure free radical damage and is included in all of Dr. Joyce’s blood panel testings.
Q – NOW TO KEEP FREE RADICALS DOWN, HOW CAN I KNOW IF THE FOOD I PURCHASE IS REALLY ORGANIC?
A – Read the numbers on the produce stickers: 5 digits beginning with #9 is truly organic with no pesticides; 4 digit numbers are grown with pesticides; 5 digits beginning with #8 is genetically modified AND has pesticides. Besides if ORGANIC is on the label, the company would be put out of business if the statement was untrue. This is especially true in California.
Q – CAN YOU SEND ME MORE INFORMATION ON RIDDING MY BODY OF OXIDATIVE STRESS?
A – Yes!
