American Heart Association reports Higher Waist and Hip measures may add up to greater risk for Heart Attack among Women

 

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.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Center Of Attention

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I can only speak for myself when I say that one of prime reasons for owning a motorcycle is it’s image.  Good or bad, the motorcycle has always represented the “coolest of cools,” and the “baddest of bads.”

Marlon Brando, Peter Fonda, James Dean and my all time favorite, Steve McQueen, made the motorcycle the icon it is today.  You can’t deny that sitting on the back of a motorcycle and cruising through town, or pulling into the parking lot, is an amazing feeling.

I’m not saying that I AM the coolest thing on two wheels, I’m just saying that in my mind, the ability to own a bike, ride a bike and represent the culture in some way, IS the coolest thing going.
