This is good news, but ironic; because extra fat around your waistline is a risk factor for heart attack to begin with.

Don't start building up "insurance" people!.

noted and we have now reached the contradictions of scientific research. so many people believe what is "discovered" when it is couched in the issue of scientific research. by many scientific research is considered an absolute irreversible proven result. end of discussion. except for now. i remember when we were all told that science had Proven that the belly fat "spare tyre" was deadly and dangerous to us and had to be eliminated. this is what fueled a lot of money for the "exercise" programs now, scientific research is saying that stem cells from this fat can help heart attack patients...interesting...even proven scientific research is not absolute....
