Freshly milled wheat flour has a pale yellow color due to its carotenoids content. Benzoyl peroxide (BP) is a bleaching agent typically used to give such flour a white appearance，destroying the carotenoids and producing toxic benzoic acid and oxygen. It is important to note that BP not only destroys carotenoid which is an antioxidant for safeguarding health but also BP itself is a strong oxidizing agent that damages our body’s immune system.
As thumbnail shows, the oxygen-oxygen bond in peroxides is weak，benzoyl peroxide readily undergoes homolysis (symmetrical scission), forming free radicals:
[C6H5C(O)]2O2 → 2 C6H5CO2•
They contain at least one unpaired electron, which is unstable and highly reactive.
According to Ionocovalent theory : "Everything exists in ionocovalent potential", the harmony of
ionic momentum with covalent environment, the free radicals are ionic momentum and our body is the covalent environment. When the environment is not an antioxidant the free
radical will now steal an electron from the human body array of molecules, such as, fproteins, ats, DNA, RNA, cellular membranes, to
Of particular importance is that when the "attacked" molecule loses its electron, it becomes a free radical itself, beginning a chain reaction. So it will disrupt living cells of immune system, damage DNA and involve in degenerative diseases and cancers.
Oxygen free radicals cause lipid peroxidation, which results in damage to cell membranes and this can cause premature aging, skin cancer and cell death.
When, however, the body is an antioxidant environment, the antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, are thought to protect the body against the destructive effects of free radicals. They neutralize free radicals by donating one of their own electrons, ending the electron-”stealing” reaction.
