A Warning for Both Thin And Obese People

A new study in the Journal Circulation says obesity has become a global pandemic. In a study of about 170-thousand adults from 63 countries, 40-percent of the men and 30-percent of the women were found to be overweight.

A bigger belly in particular seemed to be the most significant measure of problems to come, like heart disease and diabetes.

But here's the concern for our thin readers, the study showed that even people who are lean, had a bigger risk for heart disease and diabetes if they had a bigger than normal waistline.
