I thought this had already been known for over a year because I read last year that during human development, fat cells build up in some areas of the body (e.g. the hips) at the same time they reduce in other areas. I assumed that was because they were moving but never considered whether fat cells were moving themselves or being moved.

People who inject insulin experience fat accumulation at the site. People claim it is because of the insulin but maybe it is because of being injected constantly in the same area. Just a thought if fat really moves in us that is an example we can research.

You should have led with the giant viruses and not the droll moving fat cells. Yeah, it's interesting no doubt, but still... giant viruses! 😀

how hard would it be to do this fat study on a person to see if it is actually useful information?

No. we've known that fat cells shift around for a long time (especially as one ages). The fat cells moving to places to help heal the body is what is new research.
