Daylight May Benefit Weight Control

Brown adaptive tissue or brown fat which is found abundantly in newborns and hibernating animals lead to new ways of weight control and prevent obesity.

Previous studies already shown that BAT activity in adults reduces obesity. So, improving BAT function could certainly reduce or prevent obesity in some people.

New research, led by Michael Symonds, Professor of Developmental Physiology in the School of Clincal Sciences at The University of Nottingham, has shown — for the first time — that daylight is a major factor in controlling BAT activity.
