There are 2 comments on The Brown Fat Death Spiral

  1. Very interesting article. I wonder if there are specific foods over others that contribute to the speed of the transition of Brown to White fat cells.

  2. Interesting read, i recently had my second pet scan and for the first time the term “brown fat” was brought up. I had a total laryengectomy. There was too much brown fat and they were unable to determine if I had any additional tumors. I have never heard of brown fat before this.
