Gout Prevention Diet Advice - Purine Content Listings

The recommended 'high purine foods to avoid' and 'foods low in purine' that are listed in purine content charts also recommend low or non-fat versions of those foods. What does 'low fat' have to do with purines?

I realize that being obese can aggrevate gouty conditions. But why list fat content in these charts? Fat doesen't seem to have purines.
