After everything we’ve been told about being overweight and the dangers of it, a new study has come out that flies in the face of everything we’ve been warned about…

This isn’t to say that being morbidly obese won’t shorten your life but, according to this particular study, being modestly overweight gives people, on average, a 6% lower risk of premature death from all causes.

This study was led by Katherine Flegal, a distinguished epidemiologist from the National Center for Health Statistics at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Maryland.
