Was just looking over the British Medical Journal's January 2013 issue. They have an interesting article leading to yet another reason we want to keep those unwanted pounds off! An analysis of over 57,000 automobile collisions concluded obese drivers are 21-80% more likely to die after the accident, depending on the severity of their obesity. Two possible reasons for the increase include: vehicle design and safety features that are optimized for normal weight adults, and the greater likelihood of underlying health problems that accompany obesity.
