"The topic of mitochondria may seem dry and uninteresting to the uninitiated, but this book makes mitochondria come to life with vivid descriptions accessible even to those with no training in biology. From infertility to aging to cancer and neurological disease, Dr. Lee Know will teach you that mitochondria play a central role in much that we care about in health and disease."--Stephanie Seneff, PhD, senior research scientist, MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
"In 1991, when faced with my own health challenges, mitochondria became front and center in my quest for health. Over the last two and a half decades, more and more researchers and clinicians are finding themselves interested in these little powerhouses and proclaiming themselves 'mitochondriacs.' Dr. Lee Know does a brilliant job shedding light on this once ignored organelle and shows us how to care for our most important metabolic system."--Dr. Nasha Winters, co-author of The Metabolic Approach to Cancer
"Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine is a tour de force of mitochondria and human health. When it comes to curing chronic disease and extending longevity, it's not an understatement to say that the content of this book will be shaping the future of medicine."--Ari Whitten, best-selling author and creator of The Energy Blueprint
"In Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine, Dr. Lee Know takes the mystery out of the evolving science surrounding mitochondria. Here, he clearly and concisely describes mitochondrial structure and function while presenting us with multiple examples of why healthy mitochondria are so crucial to our overall health. Without conjecture or overreach, Dr. Know also provides the rationale behind nutritional strategies that have great potential to improve the status of our mitochondria, a central tenet of healthy aging."--Miriam Kalamian, author of Keto for Cancer
