A large waistline doubles your risk of premature death Having a large waistline can almost double your risk of dying prematurely even if the body mass index is within the ‘normal’ range, relating to a fresh study of over 350,000 people across European countries, published in the New England Journal of Remedies. The study provides strong proof that storing excess fat around the waist poses a significant health risk, even in people not regarded as overweight or obese. It shows that doctors should measure a patient’s waistline and their hips along with their body mass index within standard health checks, based on the researchers, from Imperial College London, the German Institute of Human Nutrition, and other research institutions across European countries.Poison centers present free, confidential medical tips 24 hours per day, seven days a full week.
