Summery of an article from Sept. 4 in AFP
According to this article people with slim legs die earlier. Scientists of the University of Copenhagen found that the risk for Heart problems rised clearly with a thigh circumference of less than 60cm. As possible connection they indicated thin legs with a weak heart muscle but it requires more studies they say.
The study was published in the British Medical Journal.
My comments: Another confusing study which does not see a human as a wholistic functional unit and may cause fear and confusion in people that do not understand the real scope of these studies.
If one’s legs are slim because of the genetically pre-determined body shape, the healthy eating habits, the regularly aerobic sportive activities and many other reasons or if they are slim because of a lack of exercise and / or a less healthy lifestyle with the wrong food and an upset metabolism was surely not taken into account in this study.
I am looking forward to your comments…
