From today’s New York Times: new results from a long-term health study suggest that 9 out of 10 men, and 7 out of 10 women, will become overweight or obese at some point in their lives. In fact, even if you’ve never had a weight problem as an adult, you could still at risk—half of men who made it well into adulthood maintaining a body mass index in the normal range ultimately became overweight.
But weight, there’s more! According to one expert:
"What’s particularly concerning is that these results actually may underestimate the risk of becoming overweight or obese among the general population" because minorities, who are at increased risk for obesity, were not included in the study. [Emphasis added.]
