Summary
Scientists are coming to understand fat as a fascinating and dynamic organ - one whose size has more to do with biological processes than personal choices. Through real life stories of hunter-gatherers, sumo wrestlers, and supermodels, Nova explores the complex functions of fat and role it plays in controlling hunger, hormones, and even reproduction
