Dodging The Roadkill: Hanging With The MC’s

 

Editor’s note:  This article is from our motorcycle blog, Dodging the Roadkill at www.clarksvillemotorcycle.com

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's Journey Clarksville, TN – I had an amazing night last night.  I went to a crawfish boil, sponsored by one of the local Motorcycle Clubs.  The Subdued Few sponsored an open house and it was open to “anyone and everyone.”

Let me give you the back story.

If you’ve been following my journey here, (and I appreciate that you do), I wrote a series of articles on “Biker Gangs.”  If you didn’t read the stories, they’re here, here, and here.  I would recommend that you read them first before you continue with this article.

Journal of the American Heart Association Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Higher waist and hip size are more strongly associated with heart attack risk than overall obesity, especially among women, according to research in Journal of the American Heart Association, the Open Access Journal of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

In a study of nearly 500,000 adults (aged 40-69) from the United Kingdom, researchers found that while general obesity and obesity specifically around the abdomen each have profound harmful effects on heart attack risk in both sexes, women were more negatively impacted by higher waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio than men.
