(NaturalHealth365) Heart disease and cancer, currently the leading causes of death in the United States, together account for over 1.2 million deaths per year. But, a lesser known fact is that many researchers believe both diseases are primarily linked to oxidative stress, the main cause of disease. Fortunately, there are studies which show that quercetin – a plant flavonol – can help control oxidative damage and chronic inflammation, reducing the risk of these life-threatening health conditions. In fact, researchers have found that quercetin helps to protect against a wide range of threats – including environmental toxins, bacterial infections and viruses. →
