What made humans 'the fat primate'? Changes in DNA packaging curbed our body's ability to turn 'bad' fat into 'good' fat

How did humans get to be so much fatter than our closest primate relatives, despite sharing 99% of the same DNA? A new study suggests that part of the answer may have to do with an ancient molecular shift in how DNA is packaged inside fat cells, which curbed our body's ability to turn 'bad' white fat into 'good' brown fat.
