Abstract

Even though the work of performing genetic experiments differs from heavy physical labor, there is still an unstinting need to spend intensive hours in the laboratory to be productive. Certainly, Monod would have understood that there are four kinds of work for which food energy is used: mechanical, chemical, electrical, and osmotic. If the thesis is true that there is a connection between work and our sense of time, it is useful to ask how STELLA® might help one to understand the concepts of energy balance. Energy balance occurs when the amount of food energy we take in equals the amount of work our bodies perform, irrespective of the nature of our labors. Therefore, let us contemplate half of this equation.
