Lean & Mean Is Health At Any Age. 

The Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging indicates that people 75+ with a Body Mass Index of 27 are much more likely to live longer than those with a BMI between 19 - 25.

Conversely, those with BMI’s 30+ should bring their weight down under the supervision of their doctor.
