CHEW THE FAT

India Today - - STATES -

In case you didn’t know, there are two dif­fer­ent types of fat in your body: white and brown. While the white fat stores en­ergy from the food we eat, brown fat, in con­trast, burns the fat to pro­duce heat in the body. Both white and brown fat tis­sues also have their own im­mune sys­tems, and sci­en­tists are only just be­gin­ning to un­der­stand how th­ese work. The lat­est re­search, led by im­mu­nol­o­gists at Trin­ity Col­lege, Dublin, and pub­lished in the jour­nal Na­ture Im­munol­ogy, adds greatly to this un­der­stand­ing.
