How to use circumference in a sentence?

  1. Kara Landau:

    Resistant starch is not digested as it travels through the gastrointestinal tract, instead, it is fermented by the beneficial bacteria living in the gut. This fermentation process releases byproducts that improve the body’s insulin response, which help to prevent fat stored around the abdomen. Abdominal fat is highly correlated with diabetes, and a waist circumference larger than 35 inches in women and 40 inches in men is a risk factor for heart disease.

  2. Scott Carver:
