Waist to hip ratio varied quite widely in the European populations in the study.

Waist to hip ratio varied quite widely in the European populations in the study. In 98 % of the study population, waist to hip ratio from 0.78 to 1.10 in men and 0.66 to 0.98 in women ranged. Within these ranges, each 0.1 unit higher waist-hip ratio at a 34 percent higher mortality risk in men and 24 percent higher risk in women was connected.

An increased risk of mortality may be particularly suitable for the storage of fat around the waist together because fatty tissue in this area secretes cytokines, hormones and metabolically active compounds that contribute to the development of chronic diseases, particularly cardiovascular disease and cancer can interpret the authors.
