(Translation: Free radicals are everywhere...)
This is my daily weather website. For the past month or so, the advertisement at the top of page has been for Zellschutz (translation: cell protection) pills. According to the manufacturer's website, they contain a protective mixture of vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10, selenium, and natural extracts from pomegranate, grapefruit, and green tea. Can antioxidants prolong your life and offer "cellular protection"? I think the verdict is still out on that.
But I do think it's funny that they've made the free radicals look like scary little bugs...They kind of look like bacteria (maybe), but certainly not free radicals...
