"I had an opportunity to talk with a friend's son who was a graduate student and was working with a researcher at a North Carolina University working with diabetes. He said the mitochondria is like a battery. It needs to be discharged as well as charged, i.e. exercised. Remember the ni-cad batteries that needed to be discharged fully or they lost capacity to retain their full charge. That is a chemical analogy."
