    Welcome to PF!

    Is this a homework assignment?

    Have you already checked the internet or books for this information?

    No my question is:

    If human biological tissue has such a low fat percentage that it cannot be maintained and survive- would this have a negative effect on the muscle in that tissue?
    If biological tissue has such a low fat percentage that it cannot be maintained and survive- would this have a negative effect on the muscle in that tissue?

    You will show some effort, or your thread will be deleted. Your question *could* be for schoolwork -- we have no way of knowing for sure. And it is so easy foir you to show some links and effort toward answering your question here.

    yes but i find its rude for you to assume its for schoolwork, and to villify me based on that, without proof- if the burden of proof is on me the only proof I can provide is that Im not in school and I don't know how I would even provide that info, so I think the burden of proof should be on you if you are going to accuse me of that. not to be rude
