  1. Hi there! I was wondering if I could use some samples from this to create a song? A friends daughter has a mitochondrial illness and I want to spread awareness via the song in hopes of raising some money for them. Please rsvp 🙂

  2. there is often severe muscle wasting in people with cancer.

    one theory is called: Nuclear Meltdown, and it concerns mitochondria degradation.

    Michael Wiggs and his crew made a mouse model with implanted cancer cells and monitored the health of the mouse and many indications for four weeks, which is when the mice would be euthanized so they didn’t die from the cancer.

    many of the indicators they monitored did NOT show a steady degradation, but instead would show minor degradation for the first three weeks, and then a LOT of degradation in the fourth week, and the mouse would be near death.

    But, when they monitored mitochondrial function, they noticed it degraded in a stepping stone fashion.

    this indicates that mitochondria show early changes we can investigate to see if we can intervene in the degradation process before severe muscle loss becomes deadly.
