(WebMD) Belly fat has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease and diabetes. Now an important new study links belly fat to early death.

Researchers followed about 360,000 Europeans enrolled in one of the largest and longest health studies in the world.

They found that people with the most belly fat had about double the risk of dying prematurely of the people with the least amount of belly fat. Death risk increased with waist circumference, whether the participants were overweight or not.

Unhealthy people die early? What a shock...NOT! How much money was wasted on this study? Next they'll be telling us that women who have sex have a higher risk of falling pregnant than women who don't have sex.
