Men and Women who are Larger than Life
I just joined this community. I was browsing a few pages back and I saw an advertisement for a book that claimed the publicity about the risks of obesity is a myth. Does anyone here actually buy that? I mean of course there are certain types of "overweight" that are OK...people who are slightly overweight actually live longer...but the key is "slightly" meaning 5-10lbs. There's a difference between being overweight because you're very muscular and just having 100-200 pounds of excess fat. Anyway I myself am a bit overweight but I am just wondering what is the attraction to believing something that completely goes common sense and the entire medical community.
