Obesity is certainly among the top health concerns, along with diabetes, but as per a new study brown fat can protect your body from obesity and diabetes naturally. The new research study claims that it focuses specifically on brown fat that is present in small quantities in adults. The research report claims that brown fat is mostly present in newborn babies as they are more prone to heat loss and since they are unable to shiver and brown fat helps them to stay warm.
