Prevention of Oxidative Stress Injury among Females by Movement Therapy in India
Arpita Chatterjee

Abstract:
Oxidative stress injury induced lipid peroxidation and the impairment of the antioxidant system has a potential role in the pathogenesis of many diseases. Free radicals in form of oxidative damage causes fatal diseases and oxyradical-induced cytotoxicity arises from both chronic and acute increases in reactive oxygen species, which give rise to subsequent lipid peroxidation. Antioxidants act as free radical scavengers and hence prevent and repair damage done by the free radicals. The present investigation revealed that dance, as a form of physical activity, have a significant contribution to the healthy-living agenda. In comparison with non-dancers, due to prolonged practice of dance, the dancers also show high levels of antioxidants with low level of LPP. The decreased levels of antioxidant and increased levels of LPP indicate that due to lack of physical exercise the non-dancers may have chance of higher incidences of infections or immune complex diseases. In case of dancers, as a complete exercise, dance plays an important role in immunity as an early defence system against infections and has a potential role in oxidative stress induced lipid peroxidation and the impairment of the antioxidant system.
