      >
      >
      >Free radicals are explained in the book "Prescription for Natural Healing", by James Balch
      >as follows: "A free radical is an atom or group of atoms that contains at least one unpaired
      >electron. Electrons are negatively charged particles that usually occur in pairs, forming a
      >chemically stable arrangement. If an electron is unpaired, another atom or molecule can
      >easily bond with it, causing a chemical reaction. Because they join so readily with other
      >compounds, free radicals can effect dramatic changes within the body, and they can cause
      >a lot of damage...
      >The presence of a dangerous number of free radicals can alter the way in which the cells
      >code genetic material. Changes in protein structure can occur as a result of errors in
      >protein synthesis. The body's immune system may then see this altered protein as a
      >foreign substance and then destroy it. The formation of mutated proteins can eventually
      >damage the immune system and then lead to cancer and other diseases.
      >In addition to damaging genetic material, free radicals can destroy the protective cell
      >membranes.

      >WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS?
      >By destroying free radicals, antioxidants help to detoxify and protect the body. We can
      >minimize free radical damage by taking supplements of key nutrients. There is a group of
      >vitamins, minerals and enzymes that are classified as antioxidants.
      >Antioxidants can be obtained from food sources such as fresh fruits and vegetables, it is
      >difficult to get enough of them to be effective in protecting against the cellular damage
      >caused by a virus such as hepatitis.
      >
      >Since antioxidants protect against cellular damage it is no wonder they are used in health
      >regimens prescribed for hepatitis, since hepatitis can do massive free radical damage to
      >the liver!

      >WHAT ROLE DO ANTIOXIDANTS PLAY IN THE TREATMENT OF HCV?
      >
      >A US study confirmed that oxidative stress (from free radical damage) occurs in patients
      >with chronic hepatitis and that the levels of the free radicals correlated with the activity of
      >the hepatitis.
      >
      >There are clinical studies from Italy that suggest that glutathione, a very important liver
      >antioxidant, influences hepatitis C in the following ways:
      >* impairs the replication of HCV
      >* improvement in liver enzyme levels
      >* improve liver cell damage
      >* make interferon anti-viral therapy more
      >effective
      >(To see a more detailed description of these clinical studies please see www.thione.com)
      >The information provided by some clinical studies done in Spain and Italy suggest that
      >there is an important relationship between antioxidants and chronic liver disease,
      >specifically hepatitis C.
      >
      >Many sources believe that antioxidants are important in the management of patients with
      >viral hepatitis, particularly hepatitis C.
      >
      >Taking a look at the treatment programs used by "survivors" of HCV (Naomi Judd, among
      >many others) one will see that antioxidants were invariably used in their health regimens.
      >Antioxidant supplements are believed by many to protect against the free radicals
      >generated by the hepatitis C virus.
