Question: what is biochemistry?


  1. Dear Nandoslover; Biochemistry is a branch of science studying Biological systems with the Method of Chemistry operating under the Physical Laws. In a way it is a combined science of biology, chemistry and physics. For example, do you know what oxygen does in our body? Why people die without air supply for just a few minutes? Biochemistry explains it in detail in ‘metabolism’. Another example, why do you need vitamins, are you taking ‘B com C(B complex and C)’? What they do in our body? How does bread and milk you eat in the morning give you energy(strength) to go on at school? They are explained in biochemistry. It is interesting, isn’t it?
