@Urankjj – the link on Urate Oxidase is exceptional. More specifically the statement

It has been proposed that the loss of urate oxidase gene expression has been advantageous to hominids, since uric acid is a powerful antioxidant and scavenger of singlet oxygen and radicals.[5]

This _may seem_ to explain the potential for haemoglobin reductions seen when starting uric acid lowering therapy, more specifically in patients with blood disorders resulting in secondary gout [Uric Acid Arthritis].

You’ve just inspired me to further continue my investigations on how anti-oxidants impact cell turnover.

Thank you.
