Reactive oxygen species are constantly produced in our body due to various factors like environmental pollution, unhealthy diet habits, cellular metabolism etc. Epidemiological studies suggest that the intakes of antioxidants are inversely related to the cancer risk. While the cell culture studies confirm the effect of antioxidants against cancer, the clinical trials remains inconclusive. The human population is heterogeneous regarding Reactive oxygen species (ROS), so screening the human population for developing the risk of cancer will provide a scientific ground for the application of antioxidants. Research is increasingly showing that those who eat antioxidant-rich foods reap health benefits. Foods, rather than supplements, may boost antioxidant levels because foods contain an unmatchable array of antioxidant substances.Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
