Anything that only uses BMI is junk science. A person who works out regularly will have a higher BMI than if they didn't. Thus looking only at BMI groups the fit with the fat and compares them to the inactive and skinny. They need to use something like % body fat, but that is harder to get than just weight and height.

Really getting tired of the media excusing fat farkers. It's not ok. If the entire world consumed food at the rate of Americans we'd need five earths to support the food supply.

Americans by and large eat shiatty food and too much of it. Until that changes we are on a collision course that's on the scale of the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Fat people still look like shiat and are depressing to be around.

They are comparing a study about being overweight to being obese. It's not the same thing.
