Body fat has nothing to do with weight but ruins your metabolic system

A new study claims that normal-weight Americans are more likely than their overweight contemporaries to develop heart disease, diabetes and health problems.

It was revealed that normal-weight people have higher percentage of body fat, thus posing a threat of different metabolic abnormalities.

The study is based on data provided by U.S. government's Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The initial goal of the study was to discover risk factors of metabolic diseases.

The majority of Survey participants showed a bit increased body fat levels, high cholesterol and leptin levels, and high rates of metabolic syndrome.

Researchers warn that if your weight is normal for your size it doesn’t mean that your health is secure and requires no support in forms of exercises and healthful diets. These measures can help to reduce the level of fat – the main reason of many diseases.
