Item description

•The Protective Qualities of Fat
•Still, fat activist Substantia Jones (her pseudonym) is quick to point out that fat isn't all bad, something she illustrates through her Adipositivty Project, an online collection of photographs aimed to promote size acceptance.
•Although both visible and visceral fat raises disease risk, some research has found that fat might have protective qualities that can shield our bodies from damage, particularly as we age.
Overweight people over age 85 might live longer than normal-weight peers, researchers at Tel Aviv University found early this year, because obesity might protect seniors' bones from falls or fractures and provide energy reverses in times of stress.
