Campos: Our Imaginary Weight Problem via NYT

January 3, 2013

I love it when smart people say smart things in widely read and well respected publications! Check out Paul Campos' latest article in the New York Times and please share widely. Woo!

"The study, by Katherine M. Flegal and her associates at the C.D.C. and the National Institutes of Health, found that all adults categorized as overweight and most of those categorized as obese have a lower mortality risk than so-called normal-weight individuals. If the government were to redefine normal weight as one that doesn’t increase the risk of death, then about 130 million of the 165 million American adults currently categorized as overweight and obese would be re-categorized as normal weight instead."
