Caption: Polarised light micrograph of fatty acids extracted from human fat. Fatty acids are critical for normal human existence. They serve as a source of energy, as structural components for nerves and cell membranes, and as precursors in hormone production. A good balance of essential and non-essential fatty acids promotes health and extends lifespan. Magnification: x14 at 10cm wide.
