BUYING NATURAL ANTIOXIDANTS

Ann, who has a tendency to overeat, also enjoys several glasses of wine with dinner. Slightly overweight, she "balances" her occasional ice cream binges with lots of vitamins, especially vitamins C and E. Her cousin Alison, who lives in a populous city, spends two hours in her car each day commuting to and from work. Because one of the women in her car pool smokes cigarettes, she opens the windows to allow the smoke to escape. Alison takes beta carotene (a precursor to vitamin A) sporadically, because she's not sure if it helps or hinders health.

Ann's husband, Warren, is a marathon runner who logs an average of 50 miles weekly to keep in shape. Because he believes his diet is healthy and balanced, he doesn't take any vitamin supplements.

Overeating and becoming overweight. Alcohol consumption. Air pollution. Cigarette smoke. Excessive exercise. Are these people consuming enough toxin-fighting antioxidant vitamins to effectively ward off free radicals, toxins produced by cells in our body by ... well ... living?

The answer isn't easy. Why? Because each day we are exposed to toxins from an array of sources-from food to pesticides and air pollution-as well as free radicals produced by our bodies when we gain weight-even when we breathe. In short, toxins and free radicals are impossible to avoid. How well we thwart these pollutants depends largely on genetics, lifestyle, environment-and the antioxidants in our diet.
