"We also found that given BMI, the waist-to-hip ratio remains of substantial additional relevance to mortality, suggesting that central obesity is particularly harmful," the authors write.
The study found that 1,291 people who had a BMI of 30 or higher and a high waist-to-hip ratio had the lowest average grey matter volume, at 786 cubic centimetres; 514 people with a BMI of 30 or higher but without central obesity had an average grey matter volume of 793 cubic centimetres.
However, only 95 of the meta-analyses used cohort studies that used a continuous scale to measure adiposity, such as body mass index, waist circumference, hip circumference, or waist-to-hip ratio. Of these, 12 (13%) were supported by strong evidence, the authors reported (BMJ 2017;356:j477).

We also used waist-to-hip ratio to estimate adiposity where categories <0.85, 0.85 to 0.95, and [greater than or equal to] 0.95 were selected to ensure that numbers of individuals in the 3 categories were similar to the numbers in the 3 main BMI categories.
