Can you lose belly fat by belly dancing?

Answer: No.

This may sound odd, but losing that extra fat from the belly (i.e. fat that’s built in the top of the abdomen) is absolutely pointless. (See: Why Exercising Is The Best Medicine The World Has Ever Created for more on this.)

An 11-year-old boy in the U.K. has been arrested and charged with child sex abuse after allegedly making a video featuring him allegedly having sex with his 17-year-old friend, while the younger boy was strapped to a bed with his pants around his ankles.

The 11-year-old boy, who can’t be named, is facing charges including sexual activity with a child.
