Just was reminded yesterday March 27 on “Good Morning America” during the medial report of the research that says that women with waistlines over 35″ and men over 40″ are in danger not only of things we know about such as hypertension, strokes and heart attacks, but also of dementia, according to new research just out!
It’s the deep fat, or visceral fat, that is to blame for our health ills, and a wide waistline is the best sign of too much of that kind of fat. That fat surrounds the organs such as the heart and liver, while subcutaneous fat lives just under the surface of the skin. Apparently it doesn’t matter your overall height, weight, or shape, just the waistline measurement. have you checked yours lately? So why aren’t corsets and corset waist-training more popular? Diets are clearly not working.
And did you hear Barbara Walters on The View yesterday lamenting the fact that the US is the most educated nation in the world on the risks and dangers of obesity, yet we keep getting fatter. In my Kaiser doctor’s office waiting room yesterday, I read that 2 out of 3 of us are now obese. Education is clearly not the key. What do you think it is?
