CHEWING ON GOOD FAT FROM THE BBC: Obese patients with high BMI, and who are DIAGNOSED, with cardiovascular disease, have a LOWER death rate than thin or normal patients diagnosed with cardiovascular disease. WHY?
ANSWER: MY OPINION: such obese people DO exercise more - BY CARRYING ALL THAT EXTRA WEIGHT AROUND EVERYDAY! Just getting out of a chair for them, is EXERCISE! LARGE people who just move around a little, are actually exercising a LOT.
Plus, if this "fat" is "good fat", what's the problem? Good fat means, "no-trans-fats."
MY OPINION: they don't actually have cardiovascular disease - they're just FAT, and appear to have cardiovascular disease due to having a high BMI. The doctors ASSUME they have heart disease due to being FAT.
