Summary: Natural antioxidants and food quality in atherosclerosis and cancer prevention provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the role of natural antioxidants and lipid peroxidation in atherosclerosis and cancer. The book presents important information on the presence of various flavonoids found in berries, vegetables and fruits and their antioxidative potencies, as well as the role of antioxidative vitamins and carotenoids in cardiovascular diseases and cancer. In addition, the measurement of oxidative stress in humans is surveyed.
