Squeezing polymers produces chemical energy but raises doubts about implant safety A polymer is a mesh of chains, which slowly break over time due to the pressure from ordinary wear and tear. When a polymer is squeezed, the pressure breaks chemical bonds and produces free radicals: ions with unpaired electrons, full of untapped energy. These molecules are responsible for aging, DNA damage and cancer in the human body. In a new study, Northwestern University scientists turned to squeezed...
