Downvoted the article, upvoted the creation.

The article appears to be three years old and therefore wouldn't belong in the news. Additionally, Hubpages is a pretty untrustworthy source, being little more than a black hat SEO circle-jerk.

A bit misleading article.
The three major carbohydrate energy producing reactions are glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and the electron transport chain.
Glycolysis happens in the cytoplasm:
C6H12O6 + 2 NAD+ + 2 ADP + 2 P -----> 2 pyruvic acid, (CH3(C=O)COOH + 2 ATP + 2 NADH + 2 H+
However the 3 process is not independent:


There is much confusion in the article.
And
In human bodies there is a natural cancer fighting human cell, the mitochondria, but they need to be triggered to be effective.
is just BS.

Old publications still belong to the news page, if they were not posted in the last 3 months.
It is such a nice counter-example of scientific journalism, it is so badly written, that I think it actually is a good idea to keep it on the news page. Therefore I have upvoted it.

Maybe they misspelled natural killer cell mitochondria. A common mistake. Heh.

Yeah but it works with Standardized healthcare...so American's can't figure it out, just like they can't figure out healthcare.
