Midriff bulge linked to heightened risk of sudden, often fatal, heart malfunction

A persistent midriff bulge, otherwise known as central obesity, is linked to a heightened risk of a sudden, and often fatal, malfunction of the heart's electrical circuitry, suggests research. Sudden cardiac death occurs without warning, and is caused by a sudden unexpected loss of heart function, which rapidly reduces blood flow around the body, including to the brain. It is distinct from a heart attack, and kills around 300,000 people in the USA every year.
