In [preventive medicine]-land, skinniness and working out prevent all [preventable] problems. Never mind those pesky slender, fit friends and family with diabetes, cancer, dementia... There you go, alstro....I fixed those typos for you..I can't recall many of my family members my age or older who weren't reasonably slim or fit by virtue of working out at physically demanding jobs/needing to walk everywhere/not eating too much etc. etc. They all died of "something"......some younger than others (a cousin my age who was killed outright in a road traffic accident)I don't see this family history of eventual death from *something* as any reason to avoid the hard work necessary to maintain a healthy bodyweight as a road to better health/appearance .....than I'd otherwise have if I allowed obesity and sedentary behavior to enter my life.That'd be like not doing routine maintenance on my car because (as a cost saving strategy, mind) my very first set of wheels (a Hillman Imp) got demolished by a drunk driver.......after gawd knows how many miles on the road because the odometer re-set to zero while I owned it!
