According to his theory, these highly reactive oxygen compounds cause damage to cells and the genetic material they contain and are therefore the main cause of aging, but also of various degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis, arteriosclerosis, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, senility and cataracts.

According to him, aging and the diseases mentioned are the result of an overload of the body's defense mechanisms against these free radicals, so that over the years the damage accumulates and symptoms can appear. Supporting the body's own defense against these free radicals is possible with an additional intake of the VITAMINS C AND E and various carotenes. An increased intake of vitamin E in the range of 200 to 800 IU daily as well as plenty of fruit and vegetables (5 to 8 portions per day) to SUPPLY OF VITAMIN C and various types of carotenes as protective secondary plant substances are the best prophylaxis.
