Tissues are a group of similar cells working together to perform specific and the same work.
According to (Welch, et al.,2010) “Tissue describes how cells are organized and grouped
according to their structure and their function”1. A group of cells made up a tissue and a group of
tissues made up an organ. A human body has different types of tissues; nervous tissue,
connective tissue, muscle tissue, and epithelial tissue.
Adipose tissue has large globs of fats in a structural system of fibers2 While bone tissue is also a
type of connective tissue which is a skeleton system which forms a framework of the body
system and it is of two kinds, compact and spongy bone tissue. Compact bone tissue is outer part
of bone tissue which provides support and protection to the outer part of the bone while spongy
bone tissue has an irregular lattice of thin bone columns called trabeculae which has spaces filled
with bone marrow.
Adipose tissue is found mainly under the skin, between the muscles, intestine membrane folds
and around organs for example heart organ while bone tissue is located in the skeletal framework
of the body which includes legs and feet bones, neck and head bones.
The main function of adipose tissue is enhancing the sensitivity of body to insulin hence
protecting the body against obesity it also increases metabolism by producing hormones called
adiponectin which acts on the brain, regulate blood pressure, blood clotting and fat breakdown
