Edward Yu, a researcher at Harvard University, joins Dr. Joe Galati tonight to discuss recent reearch that was recently published in Annals of Internal Medicine.

The basis of the research is that obesity is tied to early death, from a wide range of causes.

"Maximum overweight was also associated with increased cause-specific mortality, including death from cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease."

This data further supports the idea that obesity is not a good thing to experience.
