Researchers from Ohio University, located in the United States, in the course of regular scientific observations and developments found that people with a small excess weight, live a little longer than the rest. Despite the fact that obesity in any case threatens serious diseases and premature death, yet people whose body mass index is slightly higher than the norm, can live an average of 15 years more. It is assumed that such people to 50 years there will be a slight deviation in weight from the norm.
American scientists explain this pattern by the fact that people with low excess weight, as a rule, do not experience stress about weight loss, and do not expose excessive load your body. However, if a person with age is gaining more and more extra pounds, he is still in the "risk group".
Exactly 18 years, scientists have observed the health of 10 thousand people, constantly monitoring their weight. It became clear that the area of greatest risk are overweight people who over the years have more weight gain. Slimming people, as well as those mentioned above, live much longer.
