Research Links Mitochondrial Dysfunction to Immune Decline, Opening Paths for Cancer Treatment




Mercola |  14 March 2024


  • New research shows mitochondrial dysfunction in T cells leads to immune system decline, affecting the body’s ability to fight infections and cancer
  • The study identifies glycolysis as an inefficient way to produce energy, and the reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced in the process damage T cells
  • The findings suggest reversing mitochondrial damage could improve immune response and cancer therapies
  • Excess linoleic acid (LA) intake and estrogen dominance are major contributors to mitochondrial dysfunction
  • Strategies that will improve your mitochondrial function include lowering your LA intake, reducing stress and taking a niacinamide supplement
