    Young people's waist should be less than half their height suggests researchers from the Institute of Endocrinology and Diabetes at the The Children's Hospital at Westmead in Westmead, Australia. Children with excess belly fat were 11.4 times more likely to have numerous risk factors for cardiovascular disease than children who did not have excess belly fat. Conclusion

    Conclusion : It’s easy to remember and easy to measure

    “The [ waist-to-height ratio ] has several advantages; it is easy to calculate, does not require sex- and age-specific centiles and as has been previously suggested, it is a simple message, easily understood by clinicians and families, to ‘keep your waist circumference to less than half your height’,” the authors concluded.
