Random information on the term “FAT”:

In biology, adipose tissue i/ˈædᵻˌpoʊs/, body fat, or simply fat is a loose connective tissue composed mostly of adipocytes. In addition to adipocytes, adipose tissue contains the stromal vascular fraction (SVF) of cells including preadipocytes, fibroblasts, vascular endothelial cells and a variety of immune cells such as adipose tissue macrophages. Adipose tissue is derived from preadipocytes. Its main role is to store energy in the form of lipids, although it also cushions and insulates the body. Far from being hormonally inert, adipose tissue has, in recent years, been recognized as a major endocrine organ, as it produces hormones such as leptin, estrogen, resistin, and the cytokine TNFα. The two types of adipose tissue are white adipose tissue (WAT), which stores energy, and brown adipose tissue (BAT), which generates body heat. The formation of adipose tissue appears to be controlled in part by the adipose gene. Adipose tissue – more specifically brown adipose tissue – was first identified by the Swiss naturalist Conrad Gessner in 1551.

Random information on the term “GLUT”:

Glöð (“glad” or “glowing embers”; sometimes anglicized as Glod or Glut ) is a legendary queen who figures in the Norse Þorsteins saga Víkingssonar.

She is a daughter of Grímr of Grímsgarðr in Jötunheimr and his wife Alvör, the sister of King Álf the Old of Álfheimr. She is also the wife of Logi, also referred to as Hálogi, with whom she had two daughters, Eysa or Eisa (“glowing embers”) and Eimyrja (“embers”).

In Norse mythology, Logi is a fire giant, god and personification of fire, mentioned in the Prose Edda. By extension, Glöð, as Logi’s consort, is sometimes identified as a goddess, as are her daughters. In addition to this, the placement of her father, Grímr, in Jötunheimr, identifies him as a jötunn, that is, a supernatural being. So does the placement of her mother, Alvör, in Alfheimr, the realm of the Light Elves. This suggests that Glöð is perhaps more properly regarded as a mythological figure rather than as a historical one. Glöð is also often wrongly identified as the wife of the god Loki rather than Logi.
