182. Yes I did

The study, paid for by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports, did not take into account other potential costs of obesity and smoking, such as lost economic productivity or social costs.... from the YAHOO article

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080205/ap_on_he_me/obesity...

Not only does it counter all other studies done, such as Framigham... but it ignored those major aspects, such as social cost (second hand smoke, the cost of moving a severely obese patient to a treatment facility from complications, and not working)

So, until I see a study that also follows that... sorry... it is counter to other studies, such as the Framingham Heart study.

here you go
