The importance of clinical research: the role of thermogenesis in human obesity

Authors:Schoeller, D. A.
"These human feeding studies show the importance of clinical studies in the study of the etiology of human obesity. Although epidemiologic and basic studies have provided a strong indication that thermogenesis can be an important mechanism in the prevention of obesity, clinical studies provide evidence that thermogenesis plays only a minor role, if any, in the prevention of human obesity."
