Biohacking Book : Life – The Epic Story of Our Mitochondria

 

“Life – The Epic Story of Our Mitochondria” is the most accessible book I have come across that explains the role of mitochondria in our lives. The book outline is based on Star Wars analogies to midochlorians which having a shocking amount of features in common. The Book is broken into three parts:

  1. The Force – basic cell biology / evolution / mitochondria roles
  2. Dark-Side of the Force – mitochondria and how it relates to disease and aging
  3. Nurturing the Force – improve mitochondria health through supplements, exercise and diet

This book was full of useful metaphors, stories and even humor. I found this to be just what I needed to get through the more technical sections. Definitely a recommended read to athletes or health enthusiasts who want to know what is going on under the hood. The discussion point I walked away with is that a lot of chronic western health issues could be related to energy deficiency due to dysfunctional mitochondria.

 


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
