If the Perth Group think that cell death through overstimulation (for example) is a random process I suggest they run a simple pubmed search on "caspases" and marvel at the incredible way the cell commits seppuku with a method far more efficient that any man-made drug can induce, and far more specifically than any "oxidative stress".

When you run a pubmed search with the words "caspase oxidation apoptosis", you find 292 entries !!

So caspases functions are not linked with oxidation ?
