Today, we’re going to talk about oxidation. 

What is oxidation?
Originally oxidation meant adding oxygen to a compound and losing an electron. When you lose an electron from an atom, you create a free radical. A free radical can cause damage to tissue, DNA, etc. Now the oxidation definition has expanded to the creation of free radicals without oxygen. 

An antioxidant donates an electron to make things more symmetrical and stabilizes the atom. 

When you have too much oxidation versus antioxidants, that’s called oxidative stress.

Examples of an oxidant:

• Glucose
• Vegetable oils
• Iron
• Pollution
• Chemicals
• Low antioxidants 

Vegetable oil is more like seed oil. It’s mostly GMO, highly processed, and has trace amounts of herbicide. It creates more free radicals, inflammation, and depletes antioxidants. 

In restaurants, these oils are sometimes used over and over. This highly processed and oxidized grease is then recycled and used in animal feed.
