People with excessive belly fat may have a greater risk of heart disease and cancer than people who carry fat in other parts of their body, according to a study.

Researchers followed more than 3,000 Americans for up to seven years.

They say the findings may explain why people with a similar body mass index can have a variety of different health problems related to obesity.

The study is published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
