Apple and pear shape, both are bad
Earlier studies state that people who are apple shaped were more prone to heart attacks and that the risk was three to four times more among people who had belly fat as compared to people who had fat around the bottom and hips or were pear shaped.
From 17 countries about 200 scientists conducted a study to see this and found that belly fat had the same impact as general obesity had. As compared to fat anywhere else, the risk of heart problems did not increase with fat around the waist.
About 220,000 people for about 10 years were studies by researchers who concluded that cardiovascular disease was determined by obesity the same way as it was by body mass index, BMI, waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio.
Cardiovascular disease risk cannot be predicted singly by fat around the belly and the prediction cannot be improved by BMI, waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio.
The local population might not be applied to by the findings.
Dr Anoop Mishra from Fortis Hospital said, “These findings may not apply to Indians, whose risk of heart disease is higher than their Western counterparts. Heart risk is driven predominantly by high body fat and abdominal obesity.”
