They sound...ominous. Time to clear up the mystery of what, exactly, free radicals are―and learn how to combat them.
First the science lesson: A free radical is an unstable molecule, one whose naturally paired electrons have been split up, explains Anne Chapas, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the New York University School of Medicine, in New York City.
