We are driven by molecules. Think of them as machines, so tiny that you cannot see them easily, even with the best microscopes. These “nano-machines” work away busily all the time inside your muscles, in your brain and every corner of your body. You need them to breathe, blink, talk, swat a mosquito and for practically everything that you could imagine. Unfortunately, we are not the only users of these machines. The mosquito uses the same machines to avoid your swat. Bacteria and virus hijack these machines, and ride around happily inside our body to make us sick. Let us discuss what these nano-machines use as fuel, how strong each is, and how we could prevent disease by doing research on these machines
