Researchers in Switzerland say they’ve developed a way to manipulate fat cells that could lead to a new method of weight loss.
The process involves nearly freezing white fat cells and turning them into brown fat cells which are more desirable because they are easier to burn off.
The tests were conducted on mice.
Scientists hope to be able to find a food or develop a drug that would replicate the fat-transforming process in humans.
