Fatty tissue has been found in the lungs of overweight and obese people for the first time.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
Australian researchers analysed lung samples from 52 people and found the amount of fat increased in line with body mass index.
They said their findings could explain why being overweight or obese increased asthma risk.
Lung experts said it would be interesting to see if the effect could be reversed by weight loss.
