New evidence indicates that exercise affects fat at a molecular level, improving its health.

Many people don't know that body fat can be physiologically beneficial, regardless of weight or shape.
Jeffrey Horowitz, a University of Michigan professor who researches exercise & metabolism, says "healthy fat is not about amount."
He stated it's about fat's function. "A person with healthy fat is better off than one with unhealthy fat with the same body fat percentage."
Horowitz said fat cell size distinguishes healthy from unhealthy fat. More tiny fat cells, he noted.
