"A man's waist size seems to be a stronger indicator of diabetes risk than the body-mass index, new research suggests Johns Hopkins scientists reviewed data from 27,270 men tracked over 13 years and put them into five groups according to their waist size; 884 of the men had diabetes."


Note to Mike: I don't go hunting for these, I just take them as they come to me. I could flood this forum with interesting topics if I put any effort into it. I'm trying to edit a book right now, and my time is limited, perhaps in more ways than one. Trying to entice an editor is a bit like doing magic; you practice a lot and hope you get lucky someday. I'm practicing a lot. ;-)_
