-Tel-Aviv University in Israel has examined a potential link between the distribution of body fat and the risk of stroke. During the 1960s, Tel-Aviv researchers recruited more than 9,000 male subjects over the age of 40 who were free of cardiovascular disease. Distribution of body fat was determined by comparing two measurements for each subject: skin fold thickness in the abdomen and skin fold thickness of the triceps. These measurements provided a ratio for trunk versus peripheral distribution of fat. Over a 23-year follow up period, 316 subjects died of stroke. Researchers found that subjects with the highest ratio of trunk versus peripheral fat (excessive abdominal fat) were found to be one and a half times more likely to have a stroke compared to subjects with the lowest ratio.
