E=MC2 energy must contribute to the force of gravity

    I am really confused, according to E=MC2 energy must contribute to the
    force of gravity, so that means that every time a molecular bonding occurs
    then gravity must increase, but how? the energy and mass has always been constant, what am i missing

    In any given chemical reaction the total of mass and energy equivalent remains constant. Therefore no net gravity effect.
