STORY AT-A-GLANCE
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
