Always trying to figure things out with the minimum of bullshit and the maximum of belligerence.

It's good to be zaftig

When I read on Kevin Drum that a new study has come out finding that those who are overweight but not obese are less likely to die than those of normal weight, I was skeptical. Did they control for for age? For the fact that many diseases cause weight loss? Well, it appears that it was a rigorous study that did all that and more. So rejoice, fellow food lovers. Have that crueller. Do take seconds. As long as you are not actually obese, that piece of chocolate is not going to kill you -- quite the opposite.

Lets enjoy ourselves while we can...who knows when the next study is coming out?
