Destroying free radicals implicated in degenerative diseases via antioxidants is the sure-fire way to being hale and hearty, according to a microbiologist in cellular health
FOR almost half his life, Myron Wentz has been working hard to rid the world of disease by eliminating degenerative diseases caused by deteriorating cells in the body.
As a microbiologist and immunologist, Wentz is confident that with the right food and supplements — to feed the cells, protect them from free radical damage and thus keep them healthy — people will not suffer from degenerative diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.He says that if we do not feed our cells with all the essential nutrients, then they will not function properly.
“We are living in toxic environments that damage our cells. We are now no longer dying from infectious diseases, but from degenerative illnesses. “The cells that are damaged most will determine what disease arises, be it heart disease, nerve degeneration or organ failure,”
He explains that the biological functions in our cells generate free radicals that damage our bodies. To counter this, the body also creates antioxidants to destroy them.A healthy diet, he says, is no guarantee for health as cells in our body are affected by a toxic environment.
Wentz set up the Utah-based USANA Health Sciences in 1992 to manufacture vitamins and other nutritional
“Toxic substances are a major source of oxidative damage which destroy cell structures and molecules like DNA, enzymes, proteins and lipids. The end result is cellular degeneration and loss of function, and all kinds of degenerative diseases.”
