So apparently the obesity issue is now affecting our national security but not to worry, Uncle Sam has got a plan. As reported in Wired, the military has a plan to try to inject brown fat into the soldiers to help combat obesity. Brown fat has been shown in studies to actually burn calories but until recently we believed it was only in infants and is used to burn off sugar and regulate body temperature as it’s loaded with mitochondria.
I’m not sure if this is the answer we’ve been looking for but it sure makes for some interesting reading.
The silver bullet here is to figure out how to get your body to just not want to be fat anymore, without injections, without drugs and without having to spend $150/week speaking with your therapist.
