ABSTRACT Oxidation process is the electrons transfer between two atoms and stands for a required part of aerobic life and our metabolism. Although problems may occur when the electron flow becomes disconnect, generating free radicals and reactive oxygen species. Free radicals having one or more unpaired electrons, short life, unstable, known as low molecular weight molecules and very effective. In aerobic living things, various defense mechanisms called "antioxidants" have been developed in order to prevent the harmful effects of free radicals. Antioxidants; due to anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic effects, the intake of these foods is gaining importance nowadays.

Along with the development of alternatives, consumption of antioxidant foods is accelerating. The aim of this study is to determine the level of antioxidant knowledge of Gumushane University Vocational School of Health Services students. The research group of the study group consists of a total of 449 students, of whom are 339 girls and 110 boys, who are studying at Vocational School of Health Services at Gumushane University in the fall semester of 2017-2018 academic year. Survey form prepared by the researchers was used as the data collection tool in the research by searching the related literature. Analysis of the data was performed with the SPSS 21.0 package program. Independent Groups t-Test and One Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) were used in the analysis of the data in the parametric analysis techniques.
