Agreed. Thanks for re-posting this Wade. In addition to all the mt-DNA toxicities discussed I'd add the bone diseases-and not just osteopenia/osteoporosis but also osteonecrosis. Unfortunately DEXA scans, liver and kidney function tests are, in my opinion, not sensitive enough to catch these issues until they become a serious health concern. And then there is the CNS and PNS........
