Police in Peru have arrested four suspected members of a gang that allegedly killed people to steal their body tissue and fat. The authorities are searching for several more suspects. The group allegedly sold the body fat to be used in cosmetics in Europe.
Almost nine in 10 people are not aware of the risks of carrying extra fat around their waistline. A survey of 12,000 Europeans found most had no idea that a thick waist was a sign of a build-up of a dangerous type of fat around the internal organs.
