The observations contradict many previous, much smaller, studies that tied obesity to increased dementia risk…

They also examined rates of death in all weight categories and found that underweight people were at the highest risk of dying, followed by those who were very obese.

I don’t know what my BMI is, and I don’t care.  If you want to live longer, maybe you should just stop worrying about numbers like this.
