Like our communities, Our Bodies are made of millions of Cells.
But Inside our body cells are millions of the most ignored creatures on earth ... The Mitochondria.
(Sounds "Mito - kond - ria ") So learn how to say it and have some Fun, use "Mito - kond - ria " in a sentence to your doctor and watch his jaw drop ...
or at parties you could say "Oh my 'Mito - kond - ria' are telling me I've had enough to drink now" then snapchat the blank faces :-| ... come on live a little.
Brain cells for example, may have thousands of Mitochondria where as bone cells may only have hundreds but rest assured the Mitochondria out number us ... by lets say lots.
DNA: Deoxyribonucleic Acid ... so DNA
Of All the DNA in our body/tubular organism, ONLY 2% (of that DNA) is actually Ours
The rest (of the DNA in our bodies) is not ours it belong to the 'Mitochondria', with whom we live in a Symbiotic Relationship.
The main benefit of loving the Mitochondria (who live only days) is that these guys carry out the function of regulation of cellular resources (like a stock controller in a food market with 100% control over what you eat ) and also corrective events such as the immune system, thus the Mitochondria control Our LONGEVITY (length of life).
If you wish to assume they're 'Your Mitochondria' feel free, but you should acknowledge the Mitochondria of Your Body, in fact why not take a quiet moment to say 'Hi ya' (and love them) because because not loving them carries a Death Penalty and no law parliament passes can alter that the Mitochondria in Your Body will say 'Bye Bye' to you they out number you like the sands of the sea (over 100,000,000 to 1)
In a normal happy cell the Mitochondria put out 'Receptors' (happy hands) for things they need to keep the cell healthy and able to live that way for over 120 healthy years worth of Longevity (as opposed to 60 with ugly disease.)
For example: the Mitochondria in a cell may see it's resource of 'dopamine' low, so they'll put out 'Dopamine Receptors', now as the blood flow supplies pass, more dopamine will be gathered to that Cell. (like a kid dipping a net in a river and catching small fish, if he's got 2 nets, one in each hand, he's more likely to catch more fish .. or fall in ... but both are fun if you love them right :-]
Just by being alive and breathing air our bodies produce "free radicals".
Cannabinoids help to control, use and even reverse this action ...
In the unfortunate immune event in which a Cell becomes Inflamed, (lets call her 'C' and include any other auto-immune Dis-Order) the Mitochondria of that Cell put out what scientists call ''Cannabinoid Receptors'' (this is as opposed to 'Radiation Receptors' which funnily enough The W.H.O. [World Health Org] have no folders containing records of Mitochondria putting out Receptors for 'radiation' 'and when you do that All Souls Are Lost'
Testing (#References See Submission Exhibits ) Has Proven that Cannabinoid's in the form of Cannabis have Exactly the correct balance and synergy to quieten Inflammation and Restore Law and Order in Cells.
