Excess production of reactive oxygen species can also lead to inflammation, premature aging, and several clinical disease states, including cancer, diabetes, and atherosclerosis. External stimuli such as anti-oxidant formulations can allow tissue to sustain their complex antioxidant systems by protecting themselves from oxidative stress, however, excess ROS can overwhelm the systems and cause severe damage.
