Based on a brand new examine, leg fats is healthier than stomach fats for older girl. Carrying extra fats on legs in contrast with the abdomen protects postmenopausal girls from coronary heart illness, the examine says.

The scientists mentioned “apple-shaped” girls ought to attempt to lose stomach fats and develop into extra “pear-shaped”.
The analysis adopted 2,600 girls who had been a wholesome weight – with a physique mass index (BMI) of between 18 and 25 – over 18 years.
