Startling news! Fat people may not die tomorrow!

I've been saying this for a long time, as have many others -- like MoPie over at Big Fat Deal, where I saw this link: Half of overweight adults may be heart-healthy. The other side of that is about half of the people who are thin have the problems so many consider "fat people diseases."

The intro:
You can look great in a swimsuit and still be a heart attack waiting to happen. And you can also be overweight and otherwise healthy. A new study suggests that a surprising number of overweight people — about half — have normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels, while an equally startling number of trim people suffer from some of the ills associated with obesity.

In other news, water is wet. I guess I should be glad the media is saying something, although those who believe anyone without a flat stomach is going to die in five minutes probably won't be changing their minds.

    That's exactly what my skinny friend will tell you: cholesterol run in her family (her mom got a heart attack ... )
