Is Indoor Heating a Cause of Obesity?

Posted on February 21, 2011 by 1 Comment

thermostatYou may have heard reports about a recent study that claimed to have found a link between indoor heating and weight problems. But could it be true?

I find the study very interesting. What the researchers really found wasn’t that indoor heating was making people fat, but rather that people who spent a lot of time in climate-controlled buildings had a lower amount of so-called brown fat or brown adipose tissue when compared to those whose buildings were cooler.
