Obesity May Cause Lung Problems According To French Researches
Beware; having a pot belly may be a deterrent to easy breathing and other health associated functions; if the French researchers are to be believed. The protruding belly has been known to cause diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease among other major body defects cumulatively called metabolic syndrome. There is inverse proportion between lung efficiency and dispensable fat on the waist, said the researchers adding that this is independent of other catalysts such as smoking.
Through hard researchers including body mass index, total measure of the waist and miscellaneous metabolic degrees sampled on 120, 000 French people, the researchers took other things into bearing such as population, smoking habits and the leaning to hard drinks. "We found a positive independent relationship between lung function impairment and metabolic syndrome due mainly to abdominal obesity," wrote Dr. Natalie Leone of the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. They quoted a figure of 35 inches for the men and 40 for the women as the barrier for waist normality and inferred anything extra as fatness.
It has been found that abnormally slow lungs cause heart problems and consequently death in many cases. Tough vague, it is understood that the obesity leads to slowness in diaphragm dilation as well as activities in the frontal part. The burning sensations, infections and swellings may also occur due to fat deposition. They are still in the inconclusive category but Dr. Paul Enright of the University of Arizona has clearly stated that from now on, the lung defects should have the waist measure too as a section of diagnostics. "Abdominal obesity could then be highlighted on the printed report so that the physician interpreting the report could take the effect of obesity into account," Enright further added in writing.
