Belly Fat is an Independent Risk Factor

A Mayo Clinic study found that belly fat is a concern, even if you are thin.  Your risks for heart disease, stroke and diabetes are all elevated due to increased visceral fat that wraps around internal organs.  The author calls for “waist loss” instead of “weight loss” to live longer and feel better.

See Cardiologist Paul Poirier at the Mayo Clinic.
