Cool room temperature inhibited cancer growth in mice
Turning down the thermostat seems to make it harder for cancer cells to grow, according to a new study in mice. The study found that chilly temperatures activate heat-producing brown fat that consumes the sugars the tumors need to thrive. Similar metabolic mechanisms were found in a cancer patient exposed to a lowered room temperature.
