The study, which is actually a meta-analysis of 20 similar studies, compared 10,000 people who were Grossly Obese, but had no history of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, smoking, etc, to over 300,000 people of normal weight with no history of the same things. The Obese group died anywhere from 6 to 14 years sooner than the normal weight group, depending on how obese they actually were. They died mostly of Heart Disease, DIABETES, and CANCER.
