  • Increasing evidence demonstrates that oxidative stress causes damage to cell function with aging and is involved in a number of age related disorders including atherosclerosis, arthritis, and neurodegenerative disorders. Cellular changes show that oxidative stress is an event that precedes the appearance of the hallmark pathologies of the disease, neurofibrillary tangles and senile plaques. Although excessive consumption of ethanol in alcoholic beverages causes multi-organ damage, moderate… CONTINUE READING
