Default Overweight People Live Longer

I mentioned this study in the Shout Box and am posting it for reference.

Study: Overweight People Live Longer

Quote:
Rather, the studies generally suggest that people with a BMI of 25 to 29.9 -- which is considered overweight but not obese -- have a survival advantage over people with higher or lower BMIs.
Quote:
# Those classified as obese with BMI 30-34.9 had about the same risk of death.
# Those classified as overweight with BMI 25-29.9 were 17% less likely to die.
