What Now, Skinny People?

We all know someone who eats recklessly and never gains a pound. Hell, for years I deluded myself into believing I was one of those people. I’m not.

But now, experts are saying that those “skinny people” who take pride in not taking care of themselves and still looking awesome, aren’t that awesome at all.

…a lot of thin people may be in trouble…internal fat surrounding vital organs like the heart, liver or pancreas—invisible to the naked eye—could be as dangerous as the more obvious external fat that bulges underneath the skin.

I'm ashamed to add that I'm rather thrilled with this news. What can I say, misery loves company.
