overweight is in

well, not quite. social standards have not changed overnight, but there is an upside. overweight people [compared to thin or obese] live longer.
federal researchers found that overweight people had the lowest mortality rate of any weight group. Investigating further, they were able to link causes of death to specific weights. Obese people had more deaths from heart disease, they reported last week. And thin people? They had more deaths from everything but cancer and heart disease. But there were 100,000 fewer deaths among the overweight than would have been expected if those people had been of normal weight.
i'm starting to feel better about myself. where's that halloween candy?
