We know that Mitochondria are involved in many diseases processes,
but that is hardly the same as Mitochondria being the "cause" of many diseases.
Anyone that spends time in the Mito Community have seen or read diseases like cancer, heart disease, Parkinsons, Huntington's and more all "associated" with Mitochondria.
Muscles are associated with neurological diseases, injuries, nervous system diseases- however, that doesn't make our Muscles the cause of those diseases.
I am sure there are those with Primary Mito who have Heart involvement, who have kidney involvement, who have eye involvement and a lot more.
Yet, having heart disease doesn't mean you have Mito or that your Mitochondria caused it.
Sometimes it is almost impossible to know which came first, the chicken or the egg. Other times it is glaringly clear.
When it comes to the human body and especially our Mitochondria, much is still very unknown.
