On this podcast Dr. Bennett will be talking about mitochondria, which are part of every cell of the body. They energize the cells and have a very unique role. They can be damaged in a unique way and repaired in a very unique way as well. A lot of diseases that involve fatigue, autoimmunity, nerves system issues or diseases of aging are associated with damage to the mitochondria.
We talk about:
1. What is mitochondria and how they look like
2. Functions of mitochondria in the body
3. Effects of mitochondria damage including sarcopenia/atrophy
4. Acute and chronic inflammation
5. How the mitochondria get damaged and causes of impairment
