An online survey conducted by the New York Times revealed that while socks are not the only thing that may increase your waistline, wearing them without a belt, or a tie may be less harmful.
The survey of 6,000 adults, ages 18 to 35, found that wearing socks without belts or tie increased the risk of having a stroke by 11 percent, and the risk for having diabetes by 4 percent.
The study also showed that people with a history of diabetes, including those who have diabetes, were at greater risk for a stroke, the study said.
The report also said that people who have a history or history of heart disease may also have an increased risk for stroke, as their arteries become clogged with plaque that can lead to heart disease.
According to the New Jersey Department of Health, an estimated 40 million Americans are overweight or obese.
