 Brown fat in humans: more than previously thought
 
Brown fat in humans: more than previously thoughtBrown fat is a tissue well studied in small mammals, where it acts as a heat-producing organ to stay warm in a cold environment. Its unequivocal identification in adult, healthy humans about a decade ago is of major importance due to its immense capacity to convert chemical energy into heat
