 Sources saying that fat causes early death


Allison, David B., et al. "Annual Deaths Attributable to Obesity in the United States." Journal of the American Medical Association 282 (1999): 1530–38. 

A study done in 1999 that attributed 280,000 deaths to obesity (Allison et al.).



Mokdad, Ali H., et al. "Actual Causes of Death in the United States, 2000." Journal of the American Medical Association 291 (2004): 1238-45. 

A study supported by the CDC claimed 400,000 would die of overweight and obesity, a number later found to be in error (Mokdad et al.) 



Adams, Kenneth F. Arther Schatzkin, Tamara B. Harris, Victor Kipnis, Traci Mouw, Rachel Ballard-Barbash, Albert Hollenbeck and Michael F. Leitzmann. “Overweight Obesity, and Mortality in a Large Prospective Cohort of Persons 50 to 71 Years Old.” New England Journal of Medicine 355.8 (24 Aug 2006): 763-778. 

A study produced in 2006 states that a small incident of overweight led to a higher incidence of death (Adams et al.).
