Research sheds new light on whether we are all getting fatter
February 17, 2016
A study of trends in Body Mass Index (BMI) since 1992 for England has found that whilst BMI is rising across both sexes and within all social groups, there have been larger increases in those who already have the highest BMIs.
Researchers from the University of Liverpool's Department of Geography analysed data from the Health Survey for England, an annual health survey that captures health information including height and weight measurements for adults aged over 20.
Get thin, live long, and prosper.
Being thin and living without meds is easier than being fat and taking meds. In particular, the meds for blood pressure have nasty side-effects.
And, high blood pressure kills. Fat causes high blood pressures; therefor fat kills.
