“Our Absurd Fear of Fat”
Jess Brooks

Ho hum, another new day, another old myth.

I have written an article presenting a different view of this self-same article.

Here are the main points :

1] The current study contributes little to what we already know. You cannot draw from this study any conclusion that being overweight is a protective factor for longer life.

2] Increased weight, even a quite small increase, is correlated with adverse health outcomes, such as increased accessing of health services [eg hospitalisation rates] when compared to people who are not overweight.

3] Eat less, eat more plants. The simplest way to stack the odds of health a little more in your favour.
