Recent research found out that fat in women can be beneficial for the heart disease
According to NewsMedical LifeSciences, scientists from the University of California (UCLA) conducted research on cardiovascular diseases by analyzing national health survey data in 1999-2014.
The study found that deaths due to heart disease were 42 percent lower in women with high muscle mass and high fat than women with low muscle mass and low fat.
Experts did not find a significant advantage in women with high muscle mass and low-fat ratio, which indicates a reduced risk of death from heart disease.
The study, on the other hand, found that high muscle mass and high fat in men reduced the risk of death from heart disease by 26 percent, and high muscle mass and low fat by 60 percent.
