Aging is a process that brings many changes in the body and free radicals are increasingly remarked responsible for most of these changes. A theory which is called "free radical theory of aging" assumes that accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) caused aging. Additionally, aging is a multifactorial process and this process can not reduce to any one single situation. This review aims to summarize various studies about the role of free radicals on aging process.
