Really Dumb



Biochemistry is the study of the chemistry of living things. It is the science of how chemicals in our bodies work together to make us function. For example, biochemistry is used to understand how proteins, carbohydrates, and fats are broken down and used as energy in our cells. An analogy that can help explain biochemistry is that it is like a recipe. Just like a recipe needs the right ingredients to make a delicious cake, our bodies need the right mix of chemicals to make us healthy! Fun Fact: Some biochemists have discovered that the same chemicals that make up onions, apples and other fruits and vegetables are also found in our bodies!
