    This volume collates articles investigating antioxidant, oxidant and free radical research. It examines the role of such research in health and disease, particulary with respect to developing greater understanding about the many interactions between oxidants and antioxidants, and how such substances may act as natural protectants and /or natural toxicants.

    Redox, radicals and antioxidants; analysis of free radicals; their products and antioxidants; vitamin E - vitamin E and polyunsturated fats; antioxidants and pro-oxidant relationship; alpha-tocopheral, beta- Carotene and oxidative modification of human, low-density lipoprotein; response of antioxidant system to physical and chemical stress; zinc as a cardioprotective antioxidant; ascorbic acid, melatonin and the adrenal gland - a commentary; antioxidant properties of Glutathione and its role in tissue protection; antioxidant effects of hypotaurine and taurine; antioxidative activity of ergothionine and ovothiol; the toxicology of antioxidants; toxicity of oxygen and ozone; peroxidation of lipids and liver damage; role of free radicals in alcohol-induced tissue injury; oxidant injury from inhaled particle matter; edmagenic gases cause lung toxicity by generating reactive intermediates species RIS; lipid peroxidation and antioxidant depletion induced by blast overpressure; food antioxidants - their dual role in carcinogenesis; anticarcinogenic effects of synthetic phenolic antioxidants.
