Brown fat, caterpillar cannibalism and gon(e)-orrhea
Chantelle took us through the differences between WAT (white adipose tissue, white fat or bad fat), BAT (brown adipose tissue , brown fat or good fat) and PHAT fats (which aren’t anything really except our phat tunes)
Alex explored the curious case of cannibalistic caterpillars which are tricked into eating one another instead of their target plants
And Tim checked out an unexpected benefit of a meningitis vaccine to treat gonorrhoea
Oh – and we experimented with Facebook Live!.
