Harmful Effects Of Being Overweight Underestimated

Harmful Effects Of Being Overweight Underestimated

New research reveals the real impact of being overweight.

Harmful Effects Of Being Overweight Underestimated

According to new research by the University of Bristol, the harmful effects of being overweight have been underestimated.

The finding are the result of a study that analyzed the body mass index (BMI), health and mortality data of 60,000 parents and their children, to establish how obesity actually influences risk of death.

The current advice from doctors to maintain a BMI of between 18.5 and 25 is supported by this study, and the widely reported suggestion that being overweight may be healthy is shown to be incorrect.

People who have obesity, compared to those with a normal or healthy weight, are at increased risk for many serious diseases and health conditions, including all causes of death (mortality), high blood pressure (hypertension), Type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke and osteoarthritis.
