My good man Gordon Downie just passed through town for the last time. I’m very sad I never got the chance to see him. I’m terribly heartbroken the Tragically Hip lead singer doesn’t have long to live. He is a Canadian icon and has a knack for Canadian references in his songs that sound so natural and unforced. No one can do it the way Gordon Downie can do it. FYI Trois Pistoles is a cute little town near the coast in Quebec that I passed through on my way to Gaspé.
Oxidants are highly unstable compounds because they are missing an electron. They steal an electron from their neighbour, but now the neighbour needs an electron, so it steals one from its neighbour, and so on. When this happens in the body it is called oxidative stress and it’s very damaging to our cells if it’s not stopped. How do we get the oxidants in the first place?
