New Delhi: Want to shed your baby fat? Wait, don`t do it just yet, for a new study has revealed that such a fat is good - as long as it is calorie-burning ``brown fat``. Brown fat burns off calories and generates heat in babies and small mammals.
"We believe that this percentage greatly underestimates the number of adults in the population who have a large amount of brown fat," said Cypess. They also discovered that brown fat is most abundant in young women and least frequent in older, overweight men. In fact, women were more than twice as likely as men to have substantial amounts of brown fat. "One theory for this is that women may have less muscle mass overall, so they need more brown fat to generate heat and keep warm," Cypess said. Bureau Report
