The association between body weight and mortality in the United States is examined using data for 115195 women aged 30-55 who were enrolled in the Nurses Health Study and were followed over a 16-year period. "Body weight and mortality from all causes were directly related among these middle-aged women. Lean women did not have excess mortality. The lowest mortality rate was observed among women who weighed at least 15 percent less than the U.S. average for women of similar age and among those whose weight had been stable since early adulthood."
