Abstract: 

Introduction: Free radicals are molecules or atoms which cause hard damages to the body and probably one of the causes that produce free radicals is environmental pollution. In the body there is a special system called antioxidant defense for defending it against damage caused by free radicals. Imbalance between production of free radicals and antioxidant defense system causes oxidative stress that can produce kinds of disease. To prevent producing such a disease in Arak, a polluted city, we decided to determine some factors correlate with the antioxidant capacity of 15-17 year old students.
Methods: This study is a cross- sectional analytical and the sampling was performed in multi stages. The subjects consist of 720 students in Arak. Individual was filled a structured questionnaire specifying demographic factors and dietary habits and then total antioxidant capacity in saliva of these students were measured by FRAP method. The results were analyzed with descriptive analysis and analytical analysis.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of total antioxidant capacity of saliva were 1.530.065 µmol/ml. There was a positive and meaningful correlation between total capacity antioxidant of saliva and milk consumption mother and father education. P and R in this manner were (0.02, 0.004, 0.045- 0.087, 0.11, 0.076).
Conclusion: The results declared that Arak- Students, antioxidant capacity was lower than the other's studies which can cause diseases. With regard to this point that the parent's education and dietary habits had a significant and positive correlation with the antioxidant capacity, it seems that giving necessary information and keeping dietary habits can prevent different diseases.
