Obesity & diabetes

Obesity and diabetes might not be the double whammy, according to a fresh look at older studies. Researchers found that overweight and obese people who get diagnosed with the blood sugar disorder tend to live longer than their leaner peers. Another study says weight training, not just cardio workouts, is linked to a lower risk of developing diabetes. "We all know that aerobic exercise is beneficial for diabetes but no studies have looked at weight training," says Dr Frank Hu of the Harvard School, Boston.
