Aussie tubby tummy becoming an epidemic

 article about Australians

Australians who carry too much fat around their middle are more prone to heart attack or stroke than the rest of the population.  This goes for women as well as men.

At a Berlin conference,  it was stated that around 31 percent of Australians had the silent 'metabolic syndrome'.  It is characterised by the 'tubby tummy' in conjunction with high blood pressure, raised cholesterol, diabetes or elevated blood sugar.  And it could turn into the higest health risk in world history, even outnumbering HIV/AIDS.

They key to controlling this, or not even having the problem?  More exercise, eating a balanced diet and stay away from the junk food.
