Eat fish -- especially if you drink high levels of alcohol

of EFA. This low intake exacerbates the already very low EFA levels. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are just that; an "essential" part of the total fat intake necessary for a healthy human diet. Most EFAs come from plants, but some are animal-source...

New role for protein in fat cells may improve understanding of obesity and diabetes
... the past decade has shown that CETP affects how a type
of fat called cholesteryl ester is moved from the blood plasma into cells. Since fat cells make abundant CETP, Morton and Izem decided to examine what CETP does inside a fat cell and what would happen to fat cells that are deficient in CETP. The sc...
