"Whilst waist size may seem like a cosmetic issue, this isn't about women fitting into their skinny jeans. Rather, it's an important indicator of overall health and well-being, particularly when taken into account with other health measurements,"researchers said.

The charity revealed that nearly 19000 cases of cancer can be prevented annually, if people maintained a healthy diet and exercise, as carrying extra weight around the waist ups the risk of cancer.
