Best Answer

Because of the first law of thermodynamics energy can never be created or destroyed. It can only be converted to another form. For example the energy that is lost from the food that we eat is not destroyed it is released from our bodies as heat into the atmosphere. We can not reuse it but it is not destroyed.

According to the first law of thermodynamics energy can never be destroyed. Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed. It can only be transferred in to and out of a system.
