Well it seems that the number of deaths a year because of the "Obesity Epidemic!!!!" miraculously dropped from 360+ thousand a year to 25 thousand a year because they were... like totally lying.

Being hundreds of pounds overweight is bad, duh. But being mildly overweight is actually a bit healthier than "average" weight people. This doesn't shock me one bit, but it's good that someone, somewhere, has made them stop lying for all the weight loss clinics and lobyists.

Good news I say.
