A report by the health charity Nuffield Health has revealed that women's waistlines are growing dangerously, and apart from it being disappointing to women cosmetically, it poses one of the biggest health risks- cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and fertility issues.
"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.
