Is Obesity Linked to Disease?

By Anne Keckler | April 3, 2008

My cousin, who is just a few years younger than I, was just diagnosed with diabetes a couple of days ago. When I mentioned this on another forum, one dedicated to combating fat discrimination, I was told that obesity does not lead to disease, and that thin people get diabetes, too. Now, I realize that thin people get diabetes. I also realize that there are two types of diabetes, and that there are other factors involved. But do overweight people get certain diseases more than thin people, regardless of other lifestyle factors?

I decided to investigate.

I’m a skeptic at heart. We constantly hear that obesity is linked to various diseases, including heart disease and diabetes, and I had to learn this information to pass my personal trainer certification exam. But I never stopped to question the evidence. Could it be that there is a correlation, but that no causation has been found? And if this is the case, how strong of a correlation is there? Are there other factors to consider?

I am currently researching this, and I’ll be back with some information soon.
