Baby boomers may get a bit unnerved, for a new study has shown that even few pounds overweight entails a whole lot of health risks including premature death, as compared to those who maintain the optimum weight.
This finding was reported after a study was conducted involving 500,000 people, which took into consideration their lifestyle and health factors - smoking and chronic illness.

The key to good health is to maintain the optimum weight, because even being underweight is not a way to good health.
