Body Composition: The Elephant in the Room

Posted Dec 03 2012 10:02pm

I wrote earlier about how excess calories can lead to inflammation.  Reading a lot of the disease research, sometimes I think they are missing the forest from the trees.

In my opinion, body composition trumps almost everything else in terms of dictating health.  Here’s a good quote from a new study :

 ”Also, the association between lean muscle and vascular calcification was independent of visceral adipose tissue. In conclusion, adipose tissue was positively and lean body mass inversely associated with prevalent aortic calcification.”

Pretty simple.
