ADIPOSE TISSUE

connective tissue composed mostly of fat cells, which are seen underneath the epidermis and encompassing major bodily organs. It offers basic safety and insularity and will work as an energy source.

ADIPOSE TISSUE: "Adipose tissue is not the type of fat one wants to be rid of in most cases as it acts as a protective barrier under the skin."
