Hot Pockets of Brown Fat Burn Up Calories

Three studies just published in the New England Journal of Medicine have discovered that most adults have several grams of brown fat sequestered in little pockets on their necks and backs. It's a tiny amount, but it's big news because brown fat is not your everyday fat, the unwelcome white variety that stores calories and makes us hate mirrors. Brown fat is a busy little heat-producing fat that actually burns calories.  It's brown because it contains special mitochondria, tiny factories within the fat cells that produce heat, lots of it, when activated by cold.

They argue that the effects of HFCS cannot be extrapolated from research because the "studies look at the effects of fructose independently."  They claim, in the words of Christopher Mohr, MS, RD, LDN, of the Corn Refiners Association, that "the absence of glucose makes pure fructose fundamentally different from HFCS."

Finn Researchers Find That Early Childhood Metabolic Disturbances Predict Later Onset of Type 1

Finnish scientists have reported that children who develop type 1 diabetes experience disturbances in their lipid and amino acid metabolism months or years before the onset of the disease.
