Relationship between Urinary 15-F2t-Isoprostane and 8-Oxodeoxyguanosine Levels and Breast Cancer Risk
If you can pronounce the above, you’re already way ahead of the game. Here’s the basics. Damage certain areas of DNA and you get 5-oxoDG. Too much damage, and, the next time that cell divides, you could get cancer. Too much damaging free radicals hanging around unsaturated fatty acids and those fats can go rancid, leading to F2 isoprostanes. So what does this mean?
Lifestyles that will increase free radical generation (smoking, sedentary lifestyle, stress, processed food) and a diet poor in protective factors (fruits, veggies, spices…) will result in damage to your DNA. Plain and simple. This damage will then increase your risk of cancer.
