Mitochondrial dysfunction as a cause of ageing
Ah. My favorite topic. The Holy Grail of chronic disease prevention. The lynchpin of cellular health. Anything to harms mitochondria numbers or function is bad for us and leads to chronic disease. Anything that helps increase the number and efficiency of mitochondria promotes health and avoids chronic disease. It really can be that simple. It all boils down to the mitochondria. Protect them at all costs. This becomes even more important as we age, since mitochondrial function declines with age and begins to lead to the problems associated with aging.
