Obesity in men

Dr. Emanuele Di Angelantonio from the University of Cambridge has stated that the risk of premature death in obese is three times more than in obese women due to greater insulin resistance, liver fat levels and diabetes risk. The chances of death for men under the age of 70 jumps to nearly one in three for the moderately obese, and eight in 10 for the morbidly obese. Researchers from Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard Universities found that obese people can expect to lose three years of their life while the average overweight person will die 12 months sooner than they would if they were healthier.
