A startling new study by medical researchers in the United States has caused consternation among public health professionals by suggesting that, contrary to conventional wisdom, being overweight might actually be beneficial for health.
...
In fact, scanning the whole gamut of diseases that could curtail your life, being over weight is, on balance, a good thing. The bottom line, the scientists say, is that modestly overweight people demonstrate a lower death rate than their peers who are underweight, obese or – most surprisingly – normal weight.
So 3-4 pints of good beer daily is only for good.

What's the betting that the 'modestly' bit gets generally overlooked.

We should cull all fat b*stards. Then there might be some cheezy-wotsits left for the rest of us.

And lets face it chaps...we've got MUCH less chance of catching an STI! Even if we cop off, its rare for a man's genitals to be big enough to by-pass the upper thigh strangle hold!

Of course I scoff, I'm American. If scoffing (and breaking chairs ) were an Olympic sport I'd be flossing the gold right now. Thank God for this report...now I have no reason to quit.
