Durk Pearson once said that most antioxidants generate free radicals, but they are less harmful than the ones they quenched. He said that's why one needs to consume a variety of antioxidants.

Copper, too, has a potential for free radical generation, yet, like iron, the body requires it.

As usual, DDye`s insights to any given topic are as reliable as anyone out there. Those studies you linked to do NOT state or give the dosage of BHT used. They also do NOT state the amount of copper II used or imbibed. I DO consider such studies WORTHLESS and without value for that reason. And indeed: Copper II alone can and will generate free radicals when in the presence of such life essential compounds as NADH as discussed here:
