What are free radicals?

Free radicals are unstable atoms that damages cells, causing illness and aging. Free radicals are linked to aging and a host of diseases, but little is known about their role in human health, or how to prevent them from making people sick.

They can also be defined as molecular species that have an independent existence with an unpaired electron in an atom orbital.
