      I had the same thought when I started researching the story.

    I’ve started using a treadmill desk because of all these types of articles I’ve been reading. Seems to be helping! At least I’m losing weight. I’ve been keeping track of my health on my blog here to see if I can tell a difference in other metrics like beats per minute and blood pressure. http://www.treadmilldeskdiary.com

    One of the importances is that exercise prevents illness in old age

    Of course Resistance is the bottom line for all of these.
    For without it, you’ll easily get ill, quickly get older, and
    easily get angry.

    Dear David.

    I think that it is not possible to compare the data for different BMI, as the life expectancy was adjusted for this variable, as in the article:

    Models were adjusted for gender, alcohol consumption (0, 0.1–14.9, 15.0–29.9, 30.0+ g/d), education (did not complete high school, completed high school, post-high-school training, some college, completed college), marital status (married, divorced, widowed, unmarried), history of heart disease, history of cancer, BMI (<18.5, 18.5–19.9, 20–22.4, 22.5–24.9, 25–27.4, 27.5–29.9, 30+ kg/m2), and smoking status (never, former, current).

    Best regards
