Is Pizza Poisonous ? The Toxicity of Fat : ” Lipotoxicity “

Some people will have low subcutaneous fat , but increased visceral fat mass . This thin on the outside , fat on the inside ( TOFI )  has been observed both in males and females and increases the risk of metabolic diseases .

The elevated visceral fat found in these individuals is accompanied by increased levels of ectopic fat deposition in liver and skeletal muscle.
