Families Together With Their Premie Babies

Having a bay is a lot of fun for the mother, her friends and the entire family. However, when a baby is born prematurely, then that could pose a nightmare, especially when the local hospital does not have a neonatal intensive care unit.

Belly Fat

Extra weight in older women is not in itself deadly, but the position where the fat is could be dangerous. A study carried out shows that women who are between 70 and 79 years old and are overweight did not reduce their years if the extra pounds were not piled up around the waist. However, at the same time, researchers have established that being underweight also contributes to a shorter lifespan.

Belly fat is more dangerous than being overweight

According to the lead researcher who is also the University of Arizona’s department of epidemiology and biostatics Zhao Chen, the fat that piles on the abdomen is deadlier than being overweight. At the same time, it was found that large waist size in the Hispanic women reported less mortality while they had bigger waists. Dr Chen says that older women should be worried when their weight is below what is required for their height.
