  • Background/Aims: Copper is routinely used in the laboratory to promote oxidation in vitro. However, copper concentrations are million-fold higher than physiological concentrations and, in contrast, accumulating evidence suggests that copper may have an antioxidant role in vivo. The aim of this study was to provide data on how increased intake of copper affected mononuclear leukocyte DNA damage and liver function in healthy young free-living men and women. Methods: The study design was a double… CONTINUE READING
