Antioxidants: Pro or Anti?
July 17, 2015

Life, and ageing, used to be so simple. Findings that older organisms, from helminths to mice to men, tend to generate more free radicals in their cells (specifically, in their mitochondria), and show more signs of oxidative damage, gave rise to the Mitochondrial Free Radical Theory of Ageing. This iconic theory, otherwise known as MFRTA, has been around in various versions since the mid-sixties (Harman ’66); and it has been used to sell tons of antioxidant supplements.

Several previous studies have found that eating meat cooked at high temperatures is a risk factor for prostate and other cancers. A new piece of research carried out at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle finds that consuming deep-fried foods such as French fries, fried chicken and doughnuts more than once a week appears to raise the risk of prostate cancer by around a third – and the effect seems to be slightly stronger with regard to more aggressive forms of the disease (Stott-Miller et al ‘14). Likely mechanisms involve the formation, at high cooking temperatures, of known carcinogens including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, heterocylic amines, acrylamide and other noxious compounds; which implies that these same foods will raise breast cancer risk in women.   More ›
