ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a research study that states that fatter bellies signal lower cardiovascular fitness. Waist circumference is positively associated with increased risk of disorders such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease and one Canadian study demonstrated that high cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) has been associated with lower waist circumferences for a given body mass index (BMI). CRF may mediate health risks associated with elevated BMI via a reduction in abdominal adipose tissue, according to a study from the Cooper Clinic in Dallas.
