Mito, the Aging Process & Other Diseases

13 Apr

There is more and more research connecting mitochondrial dysfunction with many other major diseases and illnesses – including autism, parkinson’s, alzheimer’s, and even some forms of cancer. The link between the mitochondria and other diseases, as well as aging in general, is in its infancy and needs much more research! Not only will this research help us understand many other conditions, but it may also lead to treatments and cures – for mitochondrial disease as well.

Vamsi Mootha, MD, PhD at Harvard speaks on behalf of Mitoaction.org about the impact of the mitochondria on many common diseases and the aging process in this video. Definitely interesting!

Mighty Mitochondria in Action – Video

10 Apr

MitoAction.org in conjunction with students from the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University have put together an informative video that helps explain what happens to cause mitochondrial disease. This is a pretty interesting and informative video that would be great to show to teachers, friends, and family to help explain “mito” in a simple way. While it is not all-encompassing, it is not intended as such – rather it was made to simply give an introduction to mitochondrial disease and raise awareness.
