Data from: Deleterious consequences of antioxidant supplementation on lifespan in a wild-derived mammal

Colin Selman, Jane S. McLaren, Andrew R. Collins, Garry G. Duthie & John R. Speakman
While oxidative damage due to reactive oxygen species (ROS) often increases with advancing age and is associated with many age-related diseases, its causative role in ageing is controversial. In particular, studies that have attempted to modulate ROS-induced damage, either upwards or downward, using antioxidant or genetic approaches, generally do not show a predictable effect on lifespan. Here we investigated whether dietary supplementation with either vitamin E (α-tocopherol) or vitamin C (ascorbic acid) affected oxidative damage...
