Male Middle Aged Spread

A recent study has found that men who are carrying excess weight around their middle are not only putting their heart at risk but also increasing the chances of weaker bones.

Harvard Medical School found men have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis, a disease more commonly associated with older women, if they have a beer belly. The study involved splitting a group of overweight men into two groups; one with fat evenly spread all over the body, and the other with most fat located in the abdomen. The results concluded that those with more abdominal fat had a higher risk of osteoporosis even though both groups were equally matched in age and level of obesity.
