Despite what Hollywood and the food industry tell us, it turns out that fat might not be all bad.
As a matter of fact, though studies show that too much weight can mess with our health pretty seriously, not all body fat is bad, according to recent research.
Some fat cells may even protect your body against infection, according to researchers from the University of California in San Diego.
"Case in point: Adipocytes, fat cells that reside under the skin, appear to protect your body against infection, according to researchers from the University of California, San Diego. They believe that adipocytes trigger the production of immune cells known to kill bacteria and other harmful microbes."
Other benefits of a healthy percentage of body fat include:
- Increased Sex Drive
- Body Warmth
- Increased Fertility
- Increased Nutrient Absorption
