New study shows obesity is associated with premature death

Article from EurekAlert

A study published in The Lancet finds that being overweight or obese is associated with an increased risk of premature death. The study of 3.9 million adults showed that the risks of coronary heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease and cancer are all increased. Overall, the excess risk of premature death (before age 70) among those who are overweight or obese is about three times as great in men as it is in women.
