And if the CoQ10 tie-in wasn't enough...

Am. J. Physiol. 280(4):E640-E649 (April 2001)
Mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid receptors inhibit UCP expression
and function in brown adipocytes
Viengchareun, S., et al.

Bottom line: Stress (glucocorticoids) decreases UCP mRNA expression,
presumably lowering your UCP protein levels which is going to end
up making you fat. It probably accelerates aging as well due to
increased free radical production.

See how things are coming together now that we have the genome!
