Health exhirbition plus my oxidative stress result

Me and Whitley had a great day at the health exhirbition in Stockholm today. We took pictures of famous people and ate free healthy samples.

Magnus Nylander (nutritionist I've talked about) was there and he took a blood test on me to check my oxidative stress. Short explanation: Free radicals are not good for you (you need some, but too much isn't good) and they can react with other things in your body and make you sick. This is why we need antioxidants - because they will make the free radicals harmless. The oxidative stress is what damage the free radicals have done to you. If you get 200-300 on this test, then that's good. I've done this test a few other times a few years ago and I then had about 460-480, which is way too high. This time I got 361!! Which is MUCH better, but still a bit high. I'm so motivated to eat even more healthier now to get it down below 300.

Here are some pictures from the day.

We also went through the food/wine exhirbition but as me nor Whitley drink alcohol, and most of it was wine, this wasn't as good as the health exhirbition
