Study: Hip bones add inches to waistline

LOS ANGELES

A new study found hip bones keep growing as we age, contributing to extra inches around the waistline. A look at CT scans found that the pelvis continues to grow even after the skeleton reaches maturity at around 20 years old.

One extra inch in bones could amount to three extra inches on the waistline. The study is in the Journal of Orthopedic Research.
