Determining risk of heart disease is as easily as pulling out a tape measure. According to a study published in Lancelet, men and women can determine their risk by measuring their waist and hip circumferences, then dividing the waist measurement by the hip measurement. More than 0.9 for men and 0.85 for women indicates above average risk; above 1.0 for men and .95 for women indicates high risk.
