What creates Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)?

All aerobic life depends on oxygen to survive. In humans, ROS is produced by the body as a by-product of breathing and oxygen metabolism. ROS is generated at a higher rate particularly during physical activity. However, certain environmental triggers can also create an increase in ROS production such as pollution, stress, fatty foods and even sunlight.
