Researchers at Monash University discovered that the number of years that an individual lives with obesity is directly associated with the risk of mortality.
The research is significant, as increased obesity rates mean an earlier onset, which can lead to a shorter lifespan. More than 5,000 participants were studied over the course of 48 years. The results of the study showed that those who lived with obesity between five and 15 years had nearly double the risk of mortality compared to those who had never been obese. Those with an even longer span of obesity had nearly triple the rate.
“Before now, we did not know whether being obese for longer was any worse for you health than simply being obese,” said researcher Dr. Anna Peeters. “However, this research shows for the first time that being obese for longer increases your risk of mortality, no matter how heavy you actually are.”
Those looking to cut down on their weight may want to consider taking dietary supplements like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
