Reactive Oxygen Species ( ROS ) are chemical/biological species that contain oxygen. In biological context, it is a natural byproduct of metabolic activity.
ROS are a two edged sword. In their natural state they are a healthy part of your metabolism. Under duress, they can become "explosive" and cause damage to cell structures.
It is this explosiveness that also make them a weapon of warfare against invasive cancerous cells. Cancer cells are much quicker to respond to the apoptosis caused by the ROS activity than a healthy cell.
