Men with obese wives are at greater risk of diabetes… but fat husbands don’t have the same effect

Women who love their food could pose a risk to their husband’s health, research suggests.

Middle-aged men with obese wives are significantly more likely to develop type two diabetes than those with slimmer partners, scientists discovered.

A study of more than 3,500 couples reveals a direct correlation between the weight of a woman and her husband’s health.

The reverse is not true however, with overweight husbands having no impact on their wives’ chance of developing the condition.
