It is 1965. Can you imagine a 30-something woman presenting her research paper at an American Cancer Society (ACS) seminar and making a disruptive statement that the mitochondria has a second genetic system separate from that of our nuclear DNA? And to go on, to present its possible role in the initiation of cancer. The woman, Margit M.K. Nass, had PhD credentials. Several years before, she and her husband, Sylvan Nass, made their discovery at the Wenner-Gren Institute for Experimental Biology in Stockholm, Sweden. They were studying respiration differences in chicken embryos. While using an electron microscope, the mitochondrial fiber trail led them to the realization of DNA replication in the mitochondria. When Margit first addressed the ACS in the mid-1960’s, she was an ambitious researcher affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania, specifically at the School of Medicine’s Department of Therapeutic Research. Over the next thirty years, she diligently continued her research and prolifically published dozens of research papers.

Her peak research period (between 1960 and 1995) likely occurred before our contemporary social content that may explained why in my “google” searches, I could neither find a photo of Margit nor any article about this disruptive science news of discovering mtDNA (mitochondrial DNA). With all of her groundbreaking research, it is strange that there are no accolades given to Margit that would have come up in my google search. Anyway, Margit appears to be enjoying life in her late 80’s while living with her current husband in Pennsylvania.

Viral Transformation of mtDNA and Related Diseases

Not only is Margit one of the discoverers of mtDNA, she also is a pioneer in studying viral effects on mammals (chickens, hamsters, mice and human) which is so relevant to our current time. Margit studied tumors to understand the effects of retroviral transformation on DNA replication. For her studies, she extracted mtDNA from organelles harboring intramitchondrial virus.

We honor Margit M.K. Nass Edelson’s endurance and drive to unlock mysteries behind the fundamental second genome for life as well as she being a pioneer researching viral-transformation of mtDNA that may manifest into diseases such as cancer. What is more relevant for our time?

Nobel Prize in Physics and Chemistry

We think Margit should receive a Nobel Prize in Physics and Chemistry for her groundbreaking laboratory discoveries.

Interestingly, the science medal awarded by The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (shown in the photo above) represents Nature in the form of a goddess resembling Isis, emerging from the clouds and holding in her arms a cornucopia. The veil which covers her face is held up by the Genius of Science. The inscription on the medal reads: Inventas vitam iuvat excoluisse per artes

The words on the medal mean literally: It is beneficial to have improved (human) life through discovered arts. We think Margit’s discoveries definitely qualify.

What is Mitochondric Life?

In April of 2019, we launched the phrase “Mitochondric Life” to represent our customers’ deep connection to Watt-Ahh … right down to the molecular level. The Polarized Water infused with DiTetra Gas works with the cellular mitochondria in making us feel more balanced, centered and inspired. We all strive to become a better self … more productive, creative and fearless in facing a confusing world. This foundational spark of life comes from mitochondrial energy.

All of the 2020 Mitochondric Life Series can be found here.

Dancing with Watt-Ahh

“You’ve heard about the Cha Cha. Let’s do the Watt-Ahh!” – MJ Pangman Revolutionary water researchers, MJ Pangman and Melanie Evans who co-authored the book Dancing with Water, recently gave a positive critique on Watt-Ahh. Now they have a resupply of Watt-Ahh liter bottles (located in Southwestern USA) and are selling online by the bottle. […]

Breathe! … Defeating Pulmonary Pneumonia Caused by Viral Contagions

Airborne viruses enter our lungs by breathing. Viral contagions can cause inflammation that obstruct both air exposure and gas exchange of the capillaries inside the lungs. The pathology of COVID-19 have revealed patients exhibited edema (fluid accumulation that obstructs pulmonary gas exchange), proteinaceous exudate (chronic wound of blood vessels allowing passage of solid matter into […]

Inhale! … Defeating Viral Contagions

We breathe in viruses every day. Complete anti-viral protection is a myth. Viruses can morph into other strains and even replicate into our own DNA, reducing the effectiveness of any given vaccine. Sure social distancing, hygiene,  protective gear, and isolation are good practices to reduce the general spread of a contagion. But what is an […]

Flying in the Face of Traditional Science – AquaNew’s Inventor Rob Gourley and His Discovery of Electric Charge Storage in Water – AHA! Mitochondric Life Discovery for March of 2020

My husband, Rob Gourley, flies in the face of traditional science … and sometimes I feel like his co-pilot. He can prove that Watt-Ahh structured water that you drink holds a charge like a battery. Many scientists would agree that an electrical change can travel through water but would scoff at the concept that structured […]

Longer Lasting Roses

My husband, Rob, gave me red roses for Valentine’s Day. We enjoyed them longer since the vase was filled with the Polarized Water (Watt-Ahh) and only a few sprinkles of the flower food powder that came with the flowers. The Polarized Water will uptake the nutrients existing in the stem to support the longevity of […]

Surplus Mitochondria Energy for Healing – AHA! Mitochondric Life Discovery for February of 2020

Energy generated by cellular mitochondria is essential for life … physical movement and circulation, cognitive thought, and reproduction. Approximately 60% of our daily energy is allocated to the digestion of food including the production of saliva, enzymes and digestive juices. Our brain functions can use up to 20% of the available energy produced by our […]
