An Error

Back in January of this year I made a significant artimetical error which, combined with the massive confirmation bias from which I suffer, led to the incorrect conclusion that fats require less O2 per ATP than glucose. This is incorrect. They require about 5% more. There are a lot of implications from this in my head and for subsequent posts on the blog. I’ll be working at tidying up follow on-posts but the initial incorrect post is still there to stand as a warning.

Sorry folks, shouldn’t have made the mistake and certainly should have spotted it without help.

With thanks to Mateusz re reworking the arithmetic.
