Chem

why is an understanding of chemistry important in biology?


All digestion, nutrition, muscle usage/reactions, cell division/reproduction, and all of the enzymatic processes at work in the body are chemisty. Even eyesight is a chemical reaction. So you need to know something about chemistry in order to FULLY understand biology. Chemistry and chemicals are the building block(s) of the world.
