    Health experts have long warned of the risk of obesity, but a new Japanese study warns that being very skinny is even more dangerous, and that slightly chubby people live longer.
    Chubby people live longest: Japan study

    They came out with this study, right after I joined a gym...

    Well, I think I would like to look better even if it shaves a few years off my life.

    I hate statistics for a good reason. An older study found that those who simply don't worry about death and health live longer, because stress from worry about such things is often the cause for many more serious health issues. The older study was done with people of all walks of life, the obese, smokers, etc. and compared the results to come to that conclusion. So yeah, chubby people who don't worry about their "health" will be healthier than skinny people who do.

    Yeah, but there's an obvious difference between obesity and slight chubbiness.

    :eusa_eh: Non-smokers get pissed when smokers say that, and didn't the scrawny people get pissed when fat people said this to?
