Fat die younger

COFFS Coast residents who are overweight or obese are lopping up to a decade off their lives, a major international study shows.

Researchers have pulled together studies encompassing almost a million people, including Australians, to look at how a person's Body Mass Index (BMI) can be a predictor of early death.

Almost 70,000 of the test subjects died during the study, and the fewest of these came from the group with a healthy body shape (BMI of 22.5 to 25).
