Finnish study says you can be obese and still healthy
Finnish researchers have found that in a few cases, it is possible to be obese and still be healthy.
They studied 16 sets of identical twins in which one twin was obese, the other lean.
They found half the obese twins were as healthy as their slim twin and think it may have something to do with the amount of fat they carry in the liver.
The findings also suggest more exercise and less alcohol may play a role in being healthy while obese.
