Philip Wood uses gene-knockout technology to study the way mouse genes regulate the metabolism of fat, acid metabolism in humans and what can happen when that metabolic balance goes awry. He demonstrates how excess fat can lead to an array of metabolic disorders and diseases, from hypercholesterolemia and insulin resistance to diabetes, and explains the science behind common weight-loss regimens and why those regimens might succeed or fail, and reviews the complex interplay of hormones, genes, and stress in the way our bodies deal with fat through the life cycle. ‘How Fat Works’ is an up-to-date primer on the workings of fat, and essential reading for professionals entering careers in medicine and public health administration or anyone wanting a better understanding of one of our most urgent health crises.
