A conversation between my
daughter and son
Daughter: what if oxygen is poisonous and it just takes its
to WU years to kill us?
Son: Ideah pretty much. That' s why antioxidants are a big
deal. Actually oxygen oxidizes stuff in your cells, or in other
words, it' s not toxic but setting you on fire very; very slowly.
Daughter: Cool, I love fire.

How about Admin sues the **** out of that page? They clearly ripped off MY favorite site's name. Also, if I could, I would pour silverized water on 9gag's servers.

Oxygen does kill you    
You need it to produce energy in your cells, but it also produces 2 extra electrons, wich go to an oxigen atom and form a radical    
Put simply, these radicals attack your DNA bases and make cell reproduction slower and less efective, wich is why you grow old, and might even be responsible for cancer, by atacking lipids and protein responsable for the cells oxigen intake (a cell that has less than 60% of its oxygen requirements turns cancerous)    
Its not that it sets you on fire, but yea, exposion to oxigen is what makes you age and die    
cunt.

Well **** are bodies are basically high-tech machines and no machine last forever.
Also we die because of the telemeters (not sure if right spelling) at the ends of our dna strands break away until the actual dna starts corroding and we can't reproduce cells (unless cancerous). These telemeters are built in time limits

so i was meditating once    
 not high or drunk or any other, if you'll believe that    
and i realized    
   
we ARE fire   
we are walking combustion reactions   
   
oxygen goes in, carbon is used as fuel, and carbon dioxide comes out (as well as heat/energy)   
literally the definition of combustion

User avatar #17 to #14 - hammywh ONLINE (01/02/2014) [-]
well kinda, since we don't give off light as well as heat it isn't the exact definition. The technical definition is "a process in which a substance reacts with oxygen to give heat and light" but still you had a really cool thought.
User avatar #21 to #17 - runescapewasgood ONLINE (01/02/2014) [-]
we give off both -

We glow

And, obviously we give off heat, despite it being a small amount.

We also make metabolic water

#70 to #14 - Rascal (01/02/2014) [-]
carbon has nothing to do with the process of cellular respiration, it's just the bi-product (dioxide) which is conveniently the fuel used for plants and the beginning component to photosynthesis. Although we are organic organisms and ARE composed of carbon. (Archer voice) Honestly, read a book.

It's kinda a joke. It's taking the fact that our every cell burns sugary stuff to generate energy and gives it the best ******* spin into silliness and Aristotelian physics

Then look my way, pretty lady. Or dude. I'm not picky.
#107 to #14 - Rascal (01/02/2014) [-]
If anyone is wondering…

When put as simply as that, it sounds like it could be right. But in a combustion reaction 'a substance is burned completely in oxygen'. Firstly, the glucose which we eat is the carbon based compound that this guy is talking about. This is not just combined with oxygen and then turns into CO2 and H20.

It goes on a long journey combining with phosphates, hydrogens, enzymes and many other things. Only right at the very last step does oxygen come in, when it accepts four electrons and four H+ ions to make water.

I really hate people who think their research area is better than others.

bitch
everyone thinks their research area is better than others - thats why they chose it

i dont even know how to insult you after a statement that stupid

now if instead you said something like "i really hate people who think they are better than others" well then you might have a point except you'd still be wrong because my antagonistic post was just a playfully competitive jab at a fellow scientist - any dumbass knows the pros and cons of any research can easily validate it as "the best"

you cunts need to stop being so serious
#34 to #28 - principepiropos (01/02/2014) [-]
Well, I didn't choose my research area because I think it is better, but because I find it more interesting. You are just an arrogant cunt.

"oxidation" has nothing to do with oxygen
that's oxygenation

Actually Oxygen is dangerous for the human body, if it is not bound to anything inside the body (except for the lungs of course) because the Oxygen is highly reactive. For an example our DNA can be heavily damaged and end in apoptosis. So technically Oxygen is "poisonous" for the normal human being. But, as we all know, Oxygen is one of the vital factors to living, because it is a reactant in many of the vital functions.
User avatar #8 to #7 - thelordofrepost ONLINE (01/02/2014) [-]
It would be dangerous even if it was bound to our lungs. Your talking about atomic oxygen in which its just one oxygen atom. What we breathe is typically 2 oxygen atoms bound together.
#41 to #8 - fatalconcept (01/02/2014) [-]
If you want to get very specific, technically we breathe in trivalent oxygen. Which is diatomic oxygen triple bonded to one another.
User avatar #62 to #41 - taintedangel (01/02/2014) [-]
what we breathe is trivalent oxygen which is a combination of diatomic oxygen and monatomic nitrogen.
#50 to #41 - worried (01/02/2014) [-]
then that would be 0^3 which is the chemical formula for ozone, and ozone is highly poisonous

Turns out antioxidants are absolute **** for you. They cause cancer growth to rapidly accelerate, which is kind of the exact thing people say it prevents. Few reports have shown that it has any ability to prevent cancer, while numerous reports have definitively linked it to faster, more aggressive cancer growth and metastasis.
