SIX WORD SATURDAY: WHICH ONE'S LIKELY TO LIVE LONGER?!


WHICH ONE’S LIKELY TO LIVE LONGER?
What’s your opinion? Did tests carried out by Steven Blair, Professor of Exercise Science (!) at the University of S Carolina (Journal of the American Medical Association, 2007) demonstrate a definite link between excess weight and increased mortality? Or the opposite?

Find out in my next post! Have a splendid Six Word Saturday. Check out other 6WS posts at Show My Face!

XOXO LOLA:)

Heavenly Housewife said...

Without a medical history, how could one guess daaaahling? Studies show that people who exercise can be more healthy than those who don't even if they have more weight on them, but there are too many other factors to take into consideration.
If she is a yo-yo dieter, her life span could be less, though women in general also have longer life spans cause we are special. Didn't you know that?

I don't think it's about how much you weigh, but how fit you are, what you eat and how in general you take care of your body. There are plenty of 'heavy' people who are healthy and have a solid 'normal' BMI. Likewise there are very thin people who are trully healthy as well.

Oh, and I think the French just watch what they eat and smoke a lot ;-) But there is definitely a lack of overweight people here!

Hope the fat one lives longer, I am not up for dying just yet!

Rochelle said...

I'm going with the yoga lady ... I hope I hope I hope!!!

Frieda Babbley said...

omg. you had to ask this question, lol. just when I gave up and put all this out of my mind. There was a bit about this on npr a month or so ago I think. If I'm remembering correctly it was the reasons they gave that were most interesting, on the one hand I wasn't surprised, on the other hand I wasn't. I'll be curious to see your write up on it and whether or not I'm remembering correctly. Oh goodie.

Ah is this a trick question? Can't wait to hear what the result is - I'm going with yoga lady is it to do with less stress?...

Draffin Bears said...

I look forward to your post tomorrow.
I would say that the lady, because she does yoga and would be calm and relaxed.
I did my part this morning - went for a walk, which was enjoyable.

Happy weekend, dear friend
Hugs

Berlin said...

Thanks =) Hmm, size doesn't really decide who will die first..with all the radiation and pollutions these days, anyone can die even is we are fit. Stop by tomorrow for a new post.

Sincerely,
Berlin

Call Me Cate said...

Very interesting! And since I didn't visit until Sunday, I was able to read the answer on my way here.

And a comforting answer it is - as I've never been heavier but I'm also much more fit than I have been in the past. Still working towards goals...

Thanks for playing 6WS!
