Does abdominal obesity cause more severe abdominal injuries in a Motor Vehicle Accident?
January 26, 2010 5:21AM
Yes, it can. Persons with abdominal obesity become lazy and find it difficult to move easily. Therefore, when they meet with some accident, they can't protect themselves because they can help to get themselves out of the vehicle. Moreover, obese persons' ability to defeat diseases is also suffered by obesity and they get more than average time to recover.
