Central and peripheral fatness seem to confer opposite (i.e. adverse vs. protective) effects on cardiovascular risk, but how this occurs is not clear. In addition, the role of peripheral lean mass needs to be elucidated. We therefore investigated, in 336 (175 women) 36-yr-old and apparently healthy adults, the relationship between trunk fat, peripheral fat, and peripheral lean mass on the one hand, and estimates of stiffness of three large arteries on the other. Body composition was assessed by… CONTINUE READING
