    Women with a waist circumference of 35 inches or more were 17% greater to die during the 12.8 year follow-up compared to those with a waist circumference of 27 to 31 inches according to a study from Scotland that looked at 20,117 adults, 18- to 86-years-old from a nationally representative sample of the Scottish population that were linked to hospital admissions and death records.

    Note: Unfortunately, the study did not separate men and women, but instead, combined them.
