NEW SPIN ON HOW 'BEIGE' FAT CELLS BURN CALORIES

It has been known for decades that low temperatures can trigger specialized fat cells to burn energy to produce heat, but in a new study, researchers have discovered a new heat-producing pathway in fat cells that works by burning excess blood glucose, suggesting a potential new approach to treating metabolic disorders such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
