Oxidative Stress is the major healthcare problem plaguing the United States, Europe, and other countries that adopted the Western Diet. The major source of Oxidative Stress is from the blood, which presents major problems for management or prevention to improve health. First, Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS cannot be measured due to the lack of a proper method. Second, BLOS is continuous (24/7), while General Oxidative Stress is temporary. High, variable levels of Oxidative Stress depletes your body’s own antioxidants, whether from diet or the body. Poor fitness in adult Americans also contributes to poor BLOS management due to minimal endogenous antioxidant production. Endogenous means that your own body makes it. Oxidative Stress prevention could be the key to improving health.
Here is a list of the Top 5 Foods to avoid, if you want to reduce Oxidative Stress and improve your health. Avoiding ultra-processed foods may reduce your risk of cancer, but are they all bad for you? Many ultra-processed foods have one thing in common: high levels of inorganic sulfur. This type of sulfur leads to the growth of sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) in your gut, which may cause your blood cells to generate high levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS), the primary source of Oxidative Stress. In the long term, high levels of ROS can damage DNA, which can cause cancer.

What is Blood Oxidative Stress?
Blood Oxidative Stress (BLOS) is probably the primary cause of Oxidative Stress. In BLOS, activated blood cells generate high levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS). However, reducing the amount of inorganic sulfur in the diet and adding effective antioxidant supplements may manage BLOS. About 2/3 adult Americans are thought to suffer from elevated BLOS. BLOS extends beyond the USA with Europe and countries that adopted the Western Diet. The effective management of BLOS may be the key to treating several health problems including Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, and the risk of Cancer. In the USA, BLOS is thought to be responsible for annual healthcare costs of more than $800B.
