PHATS goes large !

Fitness and fatness in seals and humans: public talk

13 December 2016

‌Fitness in humans rarely goes hand in hand with fatness. But for seals, to be fit they have to be fat. We explored why being fat is so important to seals, what we know about how they regulate fatness compared with humans, how pollutants can influence body fat control in both seals and humans and the potential consequences for human and animal health.  Thanks to Matthew Jarron for inviting me along to chat to such a lovely and receptive audience.
