%X Introduction: Obesity is one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular diseases and myocardial infarction (MI). The current study aimed to compare BMI, WHR, both independently and combined, in predicting risk of MI in men. Materials and Methods: Of 5183 TLGS participants, aged over 30 years, 2206 (45.5%) were men. Mean follow up time was 6.7 years. WHR and BMI were converted to standard normal distribution and then combined and a new variable (Z score) was defined. Data analyzed by using Cox proportional hazard regression. Results: MI occurred in 53 participants during follow up. The incidence rate of MI was 390 in 100000 people. Relative risk (RR) of MI for men with BMI and WHR above the third quartile were 2.7 and 3.9 times higher than those with BMI and WHR in first quartile (P
