A high protein diet is just as beneficial for your heart health as quitting smoking and regular exercise and helps with weight loss and enhances your mood. Researchers from the University of East Angl...
Yale Team Sheds Light On Century-Old Biochemical Mystery
Given plenty of glucose and oxygen, yeast and cancer cells do not burn it all to produce energy but convert much of it to the byproducts ethanol and lactate, respectively. In the 1920s Nobel laureate ...
Why Tumors Need Respiration
Mitochondria are well known for their role as powerhouses in our cells, using respiration to release the energy in the food we eat and trapping that energy in the molecule adenosine triphosphate, or A...
