Cells held together by bonds. Sometimes, the bond is weak and it breaks. When this happens, an unstable molecule exists with an unstable electron. This is called a free radical. The process of metabolism can normally create free radicals but environmental factors can increase the number of free radicals in the body.

24/03/2016 1:40 PM

History

If they created a bad batch of beer, their punishment was to be drowned in it. In Korea, kimchi remains a popular, albeit historic dish which is comprised mainly of fermented cabbage (Lee, 1997). Older Korean residents keep their fermented kimchi in large p...

Charcoal Water Filter
