Big Waist-Big Trouble

A trim mid section is associated with a lower risk of stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack ( TIA ) according to a study in stroke.Study participants with the largest waist circumferences( more than 40.2 inches in men,and more than 36.4 inches in women ) were more than four times likelier to suffer a stroke or TIA than people with smaller waistlines.A TIA is a mini stroke in which blood is flow to the brain is temporarily blocked by a clot,while a stroke,caused by a brust or blocked blood vessel,often impairs physical movement,vision,language,and/or speech.
