What Your Designer Jeans Say About Your Health 

Almost everyone loves getting a new pair of jeans. The fit is comfortable and it makes us more confident. Though sometimes there is more to things than meets the eye. So what does your pants say about your genes?

What are jeans?

According to Wikipedia: “Jeans are pants, a type of garment, typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob W. Davis in partnership with Levi Strauss & Co. in 1871

How are they measured:

Usually there are just two numbers: waist and inseam.


What does it matter and why does it affect my health?

Waist: Here is the scary statistics everyone hates. According to the Mayo Clinic obesity is growing at a rate of 3 million cases per year! Heart problems, diabetes, and blood pressure are very common with obesity. So what should your waist size be? Men: under 40 inches. Women: under 35 inches.


Inseam: If inseam is just my height, how can that influence my health? Taller people tend to have more risk of cancer and bone problems. Shorter people tend to have more risk of diabetes, and heart disease. Shorter people really do get the “short end of the stick”.


So your jeans say a lot about your overall health and your genes. How do you measure up?
