Synopsis: Since 1956, the oxidative stress theory of Dr. Harman involves oxidative stress as one of the main cause of aging and age-related diseases. But today, a growing number of evidences are challenging this theory and the causative role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in aging or age related diseases is questioned.

'How allergies develop through the cutaneous route and tolerance through the oral route'
Professor Lack (Kings College, London)
Mice can become allergic to food molecules such as ovalbumin through inflamed or abraded skin, whereas single doses of oral antigen induced tolerance and prevents them from becoming allergic. On that basis the Dual Allergen Exposure Hypothesis was suggested in 1998 (Lancet 1998 Nov 7;352(9139):1557) which posits that sensitisation to foods occur in babies with an inflamed skin barrier and that tolerance to food proteins is induced orally by early exposure to food antigens. A study of more than 10,000 schoolchildren in Israel and the UK (with similar ancestral backgrounds) showed .....
