Being slightly overweight may cut years off your life
By Melinda Carstensen


Maintaining a healthy weight can be tough for many of us. In fact, more than two-thirds of American adults are overweight and one-third are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

But a new study suggests you may want to work harder to shed those few extra pounds if you want to live a longer life. The study, which was published in this month’s edition of Annals of Internal Medicine, found that even those participants who were just slightly overweight saw a decreased lifespan.

    I read the review of that study (and others).  50-60 years old, men and women, hmmm?  It'd be difficult to refute what they're saying.
    However, the typical American is living longer. Whoops.  I did refute what they're saying.
    How about this: welfare kills people.  The longer someone is on welfare, the more likely they're going to die on welfare.  Okay, I'm being facetious. 
    But it is true that in welfare communities people are fatter, sick more often, and die younger that comparable non-welfare communities.
