People with extra weight might have a lower demise risk
The result of the studies that feature nearly 3 million people reported that those in the overweight group had a 6% lower rate of being in extremis than people with the normal weight.

The ample amount of fat may add more years to your life span
According to Dr. Steven Hymsfield, in particular cases, having some more weight than usual may help an individual live longer as it may provide protection against specific i.n.j.u.r.i.e.s.
“If you fall and you fall on vulnerable bone, like the hip, having a little extra fat there might protect you from a hip fracture. And if an i.l.l.n.e.s.s leaves you unable to eat, extra body fat could be useful.”
Those overweight have a lower rate of developing depression
Also, scientists have found out that the FTO gene not only relates to obesity but also to happiness.
Moreover, those who are heavier had an 8% humbler risk of having depression.
In life, curvier women may end up happier
