Heavy Drinking Males At Risk of being Overweight


A UK study recently revealed the six obesity types identified of people with a body mass index (BMI) of more than 30. They are:

  • heavy drinking males;
  • young healthy females;
  • the affluent and healthy elderly;
  • the physically sick but happy elderly;
  • the unhappy and anxious middle-aged;
  • those with the poorest health.

To carry out their research, the team from University of Sheffield investigated health-related variables such as whether the individuals reported conditions like fatigue, pain, insomnia, depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or cancer.
