  • In other words, at concentrations of green tea or cat's claw that had minimal quenching effects on the oxidant signal itself, a significant benefit to cellular systems was seen.

  • Ferrate(VI) is a very strong oxidizing agent and will readily oxidize many organic molecules in aqueous solution [ 19 20 21 ] . High oxidation power selectivity and by-production of non-toxic Fe(III) make potassium ferrate(VI) an environmentally friendly oxidant for removal of industrial contaminants from natural waters [ 22 ] . We confirmed this degradative activity of ferrate using 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), though a mixture of dodecane and hexadecane, as might be found within microbial membranes, was not degraded by ferrate(VI) (Figures 1and 2).

  • Impaired pulmonary function is a strong predictor of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in the general population independent of smoking [ 1 2 3 4 ] . The factors that influence pulmonary function are not completely understood and oxidant exposure could play a negative role [ 5 6 7 ] . Support for this hypothesis comes from studies that report a positive association between antioxidant vitamin status and lung function [ 8 9 10 11 ] . Several studies have indicated that alcohol exposure may contribute to oxidative burden and, therefore, it may be linked to impaired pulmonary function through oxidant-antioxidant mechanisms [ 12 13 14 15 ] . However, while alcohol itself can act as an oxidant, wine has antioxidant properties [ 12 13 16 17 ] .
