About Mitochondria


/mʌɪtə(ʊ)ˈkɒndrɪən/ noun BIOLOGY plural noun: mitochondria an organelle found in large numbers in most cells, in which the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur. It has a double membrane, the inner part being folded inwards to form layers (cristae).
Did you know....that the mitochondria in our body produces our own body weight in ATP every 24 hours (which then degrades which is why our body weight stays the same). We need that amount of energy every day. If the mitochondria stopped producing ATP/energy, we would die in 15 seconds. Of all the ATP/energy we produce, the brain consumes 10 times more than the nearest other organ. And.....we get only 1/3 of our energy from nutrition (used in general metabolism).... the other 2/3 of our energy comes from thermal sources......the red and near-infrared spectrum of LIGHT. Yes, you always "knew it".... The majority of our life energy is from LIGHT. That's why the favorite food of the brain is LIGHT. Even the chemical nutrients are finally broken down into electrons which kick into bio-photons in the "respiratory cycle" (ATP/energy producing process) of the mitochondria. LIGHT. LIGHT. LIGHT.
