But the Guys Aren’t Off the Hook, Either…

Hey, men:

That beer belly is a better predictor of your heart disease risk than anything else, says this morning’s report from the American Journal of Epidemiology (a.k.a. stuff that happens to a lot of people and shouldn’t).

Click [7] it out here.

The article also goes on to explain why the BMI (body mass index) is a pretty lousy way to determine obesity and disease risk. Not only is it on the overly-forgiving side, the BMI also neglects type of tissue (muscle vs. fat) and doesn’t account for dangerous adipose tissue around the midsection. Adipose tissue (fat) around the sensitive organs of our torsos is much more dangerous than a little fat elsewhere on the body. More on this later…
