Thun, M.D.: Body-Mass Index and Mortality among 1.46 Million White Adults Two thirds of the adult people in the United States and at least half the populations of many other developed countries are currently overweight or obese. Some studies suggest that being overweight either is effective or has little effect on all-cause death rates,4,5 whereas others report a little elevated risk.6-8 These inconsistencies could possibly be due to confounding by tobacco use or disease-related weight loss, differences in duration or age of follow-up among research populations, use of different referent types, or chance variation due to small numbers.9 Pooled analyses provide an opportunity to consider these issues in a big, diverse population with the use of a typical analytic approach across studies.
