Fat people have less than thin people. Older people have less than younger people. Men have less than younger women. It is brown fat, actually brown in color, and its great appeal is that it burns calories like a furnace. A new study finds that one form of it, which is turned on when people get cold, sucks fat out of the rest of the body to fuel itself. Another new study finds that a second form of brown fat can be created from ordinary white fat by exercise . Of course, researchers say, they are not blind to the implications of their work. If they could turn on brown fat in people without putting them in cold rooms or making them [...] Full article at I wouldn't be surprised if the brown fat within the white fat is a precursor that migrates to the areas where we store it long-term (sides of neck, along spine, etc.) and matures there into it's final form as a metabolic powerhouse. Also, many thanks to my mom and dad for saving energy and reduci

The planet Venus will cross the face of the sun . Through the balance of this winter season and well into the spring of 2012, Venus will gradually climb higher in the sky and grow progressively brighter, eventually becoming an "evening lantern" for those commuting home from work and school.
