Studies presented at the meeting of "American Heart Association" (American Heart Association) showed a large waist may be a short road to a heart attack or serious heart disease.

"Waist circumference is an important thing," said a heart expert at the University of Colorado and Chairman of the American Heart Association, Dr. Robert Eckel to the Health and Science Correspondent Reuters news agency, Maggie Fox.

In addition, the study also found that people with high BMI numbers are not at risk of early death except for those that have a large waist circumference.

As a rule of thumb, the waist measures 40 inches or 102 cm is a sign of danger for men, while for women the risk is increased in waist size of 30 inches or 76 cm.

The research team also found that the people who was "apple" has a tendency to suffer from heart-specific symptoms called left ventricular dysfunction and diastolic dysfunction is a benchmark performance of the heart in pumping blood.

After observing the people in the group who died within five years, they concluded that the low diastoliknya function and have a large waist size, likely to die earlier.

"Do not just calculate the height, weight and BMI, preferably accompanied by measuring waist circumference, neck circumference are also gentlemen," said Khawaja Ammar.
