A fat tummy is an obvious indicator of a person’s health. How so? Fat is considered by most specialists as hazardous to one’s health. If you have a bundle of unhealthy trans-fats moving through your blood stream it’s a good chance these trans-fats may cause artery blockages and strokes.
Tummy fat can also become a haven that is a perfect space for disease-carrying bacteria and viruses. Research shows that people who are obese struggle much more than other people with a plethora of conditions such as depression, low self-esteem and acute fatigue syndrome let alone more serious diseases such as diabetes.
