A new type of fat found

Posted:

Researchers have found a form of fat that actually burns calories, rather than stores them. The fat is being called "Beige Fat".  Researchers found that during exercise a hormone converts regular fat cells into beige fat burning up extra calories. Researchers are hoping to study the fat and figure out how to harness it's calorie burning properties with a new drug.
