What does the body for our health?

You are a "pear" or "apple"? Does your neck is thick? Ankles ... what shape they have? Characteristics of the body of each is clear evidence of its health. But what does each one?
  • Have thick necks?
Can the size of the neck, to determine one's health The answer is yes. According to recent studies, the circumference of the neck can tell so much about health, you and your BMI (body mass index), which is considered one of the key indicators that determine health.

According to research published in the journal «Pediatrics», the magazine of the American Pediatric
Association, neck circumference can be used instead of BMI to diagnose obesity in children.
Moreover, according to a study by Boston University, neck circumference is a marker for cardiovascular risk. The neck measurement is directly related to sleep apnea, which in turn determines other health problems.

To understand if your neck is thick, do the trick the collar. If you find that a collar of a shirt or a necklace you wore when you were young, does not fit comfortably, then it would be good to show caution.

  • The waist is larger than your hips?
Many consider responsible for the wide waist beer consumption, still others call fats protruding "handles" or even "life preserver." The truth however, is that the fat around the middle of the body, not a sign of health.
Indeed, one study found that people who have normal weight but have excess belly fat around the waist may be at higher risk of dying from heart disease than those who are officially obese.

The "culprit" is the layer of fat called omentum, which is inside the abdomen and indeed, dangerously close to important organs. This fat is still called visceral or intra-abdominal fat. Can travel quickly to the liver via the blood or to "installed" in the walls of arteries.

Abdominal fat is a sign of metabolic syndrome and has been associated with heart disease, arterial disease
and diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is defined as the situation where someone has three of the four points: obesity, with fat concentrated around the waist, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar levels.

Those who have metabolic syndrome are likely to be prediabetic or show resistance to insulin, which is why the doctor will order regular monitoring of diabetes and suggest lifestyle changes to reduce risk.

  • You are a "pear" or "apple"?
Although like shaped body, known as the "pear" (fat concentrated in hips, thighs and butt) is more healthy than the "apple" (fat concentrated in the center of the body), and this is the type of body own health problems.
According to experts, women who have shaped body "pear" have a higher rate of osteoporosis, possibly because of the extra weight on low on the hips.
A new study, conducted by researchers at UC Davis and published in «Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism», contradicts the earlier view that people with "pear-shaped" lower risk for diseases like heart disease and diabetes, from what people shaped 'apple'.
The researchers found that the fat is concentrated in specific parts of the body can increase a person's chances for developing metabolic syndrome.
The researchers examined a group of 45 patients with early metabolic syndrome and compared them with a control group of 30 subjects, age and sex. They found that the fat in the rear region raised the level of protein that binds with high blood pressure and low "good" cholesterol.
The study is in contrast to the prevailing view until recently that the abdominal fat is the most dangerous of the fat in other body parts.
Another study of 2008, published in the «Archives of Internal Medicine» revealed that the average size is more important factor than the weight of the body, for determination of heart disease.
Also, the study «Interheart», published in 2004 and considered one of the leading studies on the risk factors of heart disease, found that waist-to-hip ratio was three times more accurate in predicting the risk of heart disease than the body mass index.
The good news of course is that weight loss can reduce levels of "guilt" protein along with the risk for metabolic syndrome.
Experts insist, however, that whatever the body type of each, exercise, regular visits to the doctor and a balanced diet are determinants of good health.

  • Do you have weak limbs?
The very thin legs and arms is not necessarily a bad thing, especially not since many people simply have a genetic tendency for more sensitive edges.
But skinny limbs may also indicate a lack of muscle and as it is known, low muscle mass is a risk factor for heart disease and other conditions that are not conducive to longevity.
In recent years, many research studies have shown that muscle mass is directly related to health and longevity. As man grows, it tends to lose muscle mass gradually, starting at 1% per year in adolescence and then accelerating to an average of about 8% from 40 years onwards.
The good news is that the loss of muscle strength is not inevitable. Studies have shown that older adults can build and maintain their muscle strength, even at levels almost equal to those they had before their 40 years.

  • Do you have thick ankles or leg fat?
If you were born with thick ankles, then, unfortunately, the only thing you can do is take the blame ... on your ancestors. But if your ankles are gaining weight in recent months or weeks, this could be a sign of edema and fluid retention.
Many people make retention when consuming too much salt or when flying by plane, while in the case of women the phenomenon of retention is common when waiting period.
However, the liquid retention time may also be a sign of heart or kidney disease, signifying that these bodies do not function effectively and do not allow for smooth circulation of blood and other body fluids.
Moreover, the retention time does not leave the body to secrete toxins and associated with serious health conditions. If you notice that the swelling does not subside within a few days, it would be advisable to contact your doctor.
