Interest in the biological effects of reactive oxygen species (ROS) was stimulated by results suggesting that ROS are involved in the pathogenesis of various disorders including photoaging, vascular diseases, cataract, impaired immune functions, or cancers which are all relevant in aging. On the other hand, investigations in laboratory animal and human epidemiological studies corroborated the relationship between protection against free radical related pathologies and nutritional status (1–5).
