Cell Energy Facts

Cell Energy

Most of our energy comes from a tiny little energy factory in our cells.   This tiny little factory was essentially a small bacterium called mitochondrion that our ancestral cells swallowed when they had a little microscopic stand-off.   Eventually they got to know each other over the years and are now running the multi-billion cell industry that is our body.
