So I urge you to “follow” me on Twitter. The Twitter address is @willnerchemists.

The mitochondria are the parts of cell that generate energy. They are often called the “cellular power plants.” They are involved in other critical cellular functions as well, including cell growth. Recent interest has focused on energy, cardiac function, aging, longevity and mental health. . . Read More!
