Adverse Consequences of Obesity Underestimated

The link between obesity and cardiovascular mortality may be substantially underestimated, while some of the adverse consequences of being underweight may be overstated.  While numerous studies have investigated the link between body mass index (BMI) and mortality, showing that high BMI is associated with higher rates of death from cardiovascular causes, diabetes, and some cancers, inconsistent evidence suggests that low BMI is associated with increased mortality from other causes, such as respiratory disease and lung cancer.
