Fat thighs and big hips could lower chances of early death, says new study

A new study found that having broad hips or large hips could help a person to live longer while having a big waist does the opposite.

The researchers looked into data for more than 2.5 million people between three and 24 years.

The new ground-breaking study was recently published in the British Medical Journal.

Dr Tauseef Ahmad Khan is the study author from the department of nutritional sciences at the University of Toronto in Canada.

The study also found that every extra 4 inches (10cm) of waist size was associated with an 11% higher chance of dying prematurely.

Dr Khan said: “People should be more concerned about their waist rather than focusing only on weight or BMI.

“Waist is a better indicator of belly fat and while one cannot target where one loses fat from, losing weight through diet and exercise will also reduce waist and therefore belly fat.

“Belly fat is the fat that is stored around the organs in the abdomen and its excess is linked to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

“Therefore, having more belly fat can increase the risk of dying from these diseases.”

However, Dr Khan says hip fat is considered beneficial and thigh size is an indicator of the amount of muscle.

Their findings suggest that thigh and hip circumference were “inversely associated with all-cause morality risk”.

Each 10cm increase in hip circumference was associated with a 10% lower risk of death from all causes.

Don Jazzy reveals he once was married, gives reason for divorce

Prominent figure on the Nigerian music scene, Don Jazzy, well acclaimed for his production skills, management attributes and jovial online personality, bares it all in an all revealing epistle, noting he once was married at a very young age of 20 while also giving reasons for the divorce.

Stating reason for divorce was because he “f–ked up”, making music his main priority instead of focusing himself into the marriage relationship. Don Jazzy also states he “felt bad skipping this huge [marriage] part of [his] life” during the recently released Bounce Black Box Interview with Ebuka (which is now available for streaming on YouTube).

According to Don Jazzy, he married his ex-wife 18 years ago (2003) but did not reveal this information for so long because he likes “to keep [his] relationships private actually. Past or present.”

Admitting quite frankly that it did hurt stopping the marriage with Michelle – @yarnstaswitch on Instagram, Don Jazzy truthfully kept it real, saying, “I am still very much in love with my music and I wouldn’t want to marry another and fuck it up again. So I’m taking my time.”

On his Instagram page, he uploaded the white wedding picture with the epistle, himself and Michelle (who is now a headshot model for brands and a writer based in the UK) while adding two extra photos on his Twitter, one at the registry with his parents in the background, the other which looks like their traditional wedding.

This news for sure comes as shock to many, as they are marvelled at how secretive he held on to this for so long while affiliating himself and managing various top artistes; commending his affiliates (who knew of the information) for not leaking despite their differences. Fans also commend him for being so strong for so long, advising him to take his time, praying the right time will come soonest.
