Only in the FA world .... are you apt to meet people who have favourite fatness/health studies!

Mine is one that looked at 'hazard ratio' (extra deaths in the population) of normal/overweight/obese subjects, sorted by how many of four particular healthy habits they had. The takeaway is that even a couple of those habits keep the risks low for all weight groups, and the higher hazard for the obese only really showed up in the zero and one healthy habits groups.

(of course, 'obese' starts at BMI of 30, so we don't see how higher levels of fatness might interact with this. Would love to see the same sort of chart with BMI 30-35, 35-40, 40-50, 50+ or something like that, just to see how much impact higher levels of fatness do or don't have)
