Health Benefits Of Being Overweight

A new report shows that being overweight is not as harmful as is commonly
believed, and actually confers some surprising health benefits.

Being five to ten pounds overweight could protect people from ailments ranging
from tuberculosis to Alzheimer’s disease, research indicates.

Those carrying 15 to 25 extra pounds are better able to recover from adverse
conditions such as emphysema, pneumonia, and various injuries and infections,
states the report.

Thirty to forty pounds of flab could help fend off breast, kidney, pancreatic, prostate,
and colon cancer. And an extra fifty pounds on the scale may improve eyesight,
reverse baldness, cure the common cold, and reduce global warming.

In general, the report concludes, overweight people are happier, more successful in
business, smarter, and friendlier.

“This just goes to show that conventional wisdom is wrong,” said a spokeswoman for
the study group. “Not to mention the hundreds of studies that came before!”

The study was funded by a research grant from McDonald’s, Burger King, Jack in the
Box, Taco Bell, Domino’s Pizza, Starbucks, Haagen Dazs, Sara Lee, and Krispy Kreme !
