Belly fat is so dangerous: here is why

  • If your waist measures 35 or more inches for women or 40 or more inches for men, chances are you’re harboring a potentially dangerous amount of fat. Abdominal Subcutaneous fat that lurks beneath the skin as “love handles” or padding on the thighs, buttocks or upper arms may be cosmetically challenging, but it is otherwise harmless.

I hope that these little fact help someone who does not understand the dangers of the "Love Handle"
