In a study undertaken in Sweden, a group of men were followed over
four decades. An excerpt from the study is below:
“Having accounted for age, socio-economic status, muscle strength and smoking, the
researchers found that men who were overweight (body mass index, or BMI, from 25.0
to 29.9) during adolescence at the point they joined the Swedish military in 1969 and
1970 had a 33% higher rate of mortality during the study period, as compared with
their counterparts in the normal weight range (BMI from 18.5 to 24.9). Obese men
(BMI of 30 or more) had even higher risk - a whopping 114% elevated likelihood of
death during the period. Similar relative estimates were obtained when smokers and
non-smokers were analyzed separately. Figures also did not differ by much when
smoking was not adjusted for.”
