Alarming new study of 2.8 million adults says obesity will cut years off your life

America faces a big health crisis.

Adults with severe obesity are 12 times as likely to develop Type 2 diabetes, and are at 22 times greater risk of sleep apnoea than their normal weight peers, according to new estimates presented last weekend at the 2019 European Congress on Obesity in Glasgow, Scotland.

BMI calculates weight, muscle, fat and bone in relation to height and gender. A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight and those with a BMI of 30 or more are considered obese; severely obese is a BMI of 40 to 45, and morbidly obese people have a BMI of 44.9 or more.
