Overweight People Are at Greater Risk of Dying from Heart Disease and Cancers
A new research suggests that adults who gain lots of weight and become overweight or obese increase their risk of dying from heart disease, cancer or other diseases.
For the study, the team of researchers tracked the weight history of more than 225,000 participants in three big studies, gauging the maximum body mass index (BMI) of every person an average of 16 years.
Andrew Stokes, an assistant professor of global health at the Boston University School of Public Health, explains: “We found that after considering weight history, the apparent paradoxical association between overweight/obesity and the risk of dying completely disappeared.”
The results of the study showed that morbidly obese people were twice as likely to die from any cause, more than 3 times as likely to die from heart disease, and 50% more likely to die from cancer compared to the people with the normal weight.
