    People who are obese or overweight at some point in their adult lives have an elevated risk of death from cardiovascular disease, cancer and other causes. Analyzing weight history over a period of time, rather than at a single point, reversed the paradoxical association between excess weight and reduced mortality that had been seen in previous studies. The findings are published in Annals of Internal Medicine.
