Use It Or Lose It

Being the powerhouse of the cell might seem like an important job, but the mitochondrion is still subject to the “use it or lose it” rule of evolution. Organisms might lose their mitochondria if these organelles aren’t used. Today, we know that a salmon parasite and a parasitic flagellate has been sucking energy from their hosts for so long that they’ve lost all their mitochondria. Luckily, you are a free-loving, non-parasitic organism! So, why not buy our beautiful mitochondrion necklace and relish in the fact that you’re not stuck in someone’s large intestine. This piece also makes a great gift for cell biologists, microbiologists, strong independent people, and self-sufficient starry-eyed pre-med students.
