Wat ze tot dusver ontdekt hebben is dus dat je lichaamstemperatuur iets stijgt als je jezelf blootstelt aan kou.quote:Our study showed that brown-adipose-tissue activity was significantly lower in overweight or obese male subjects than in lean male subjects. There was a significant negative relation between brown-adipose-tissue activity and BMI as well as between brown-adipose-tissue activity and percentage of body fat. However, only one obese subject had no brown-adipose-tissue activity. This finding indicates that it may be possible to increase brown adipose tissue in most overweight or obese men, and we speculate that methods of increasing brown adipose tissue in such men may be of therapeutic interest. Studies of the effects of regular exposure to cold, weight-loss diets, and increased physical activity on brown-adipose-tissue activity will also be of interest.
