And it doesn’t help you get laid, either.

In the news: Having a big waistline can nearly double your risk of dying early, a major study has found. Researchers from Imperial College London, the German Institute of Human Nutrition and other European institutions did the wide-scale study found that carrying excess fat around the middle increases the risk of early death. The study was in The New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers did not focus on why some people develop bulging waistlines, but they said anyone with a large waist should increase their daily exercise, avoid drinking alcohol excessively and improve their diet.
Commentary: This is a follow-up to the original 1962 study done at Faber College, where top researcher Dean Vernon Wormer warned: Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.
