Date: April 16, 2018
Mitochondria dysfunction has been linked to multiple disease like Type 2 Diabetes and Heart disease. It plays and extremely important role in how our bodies work, age and function. Yet, it is rarely spoken about and given little credit. Dr. Lee Know is bringing this to light while discussing his book “Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine.”
Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
I love talking about what our little cells are doing in our bodies that we don’t even know about. We are so lucky that so much happens inside us to take care of us. Hopfully information like this can change medicine as we know it, and instead of covering up symptoms, we can make real changes in diseases.
