How Men's Big Calves Reveal Their Health
Men with bigger calves may have better heart health and lower risk of diabetes, according to a recent study.
The study found that larger calf circumference was associated with lower blood pressure and a reduced risk of hypertension.
Men with bigger calves also had lower levels of bad cholesterol and higher levels of good cholesterol.
The study suggests that calf size may be a useful indicator of overall health in men.
However, the study did not find a significant association between calf size and risk of heart attack or stroke.
The researchers believe that the protective effect of larger calves may be due to the muscles in the lower legs helping to pump blood back up to the heart.
The study highlights the importance of regular exercise, which can help to build muscle mass and improve overall health.
