A new finding suggests that obesity may affect your health the most after age 40.
A study compared medications taken by normal weight, overweight and obese Americans ages 25 to 70. While obese people of all ages took slightly more medications than those of normal weight, the differences were mainly among adults 40 and older.
According to the New York Times:
"For example, 28.7 percent of obese men and 25.2 percent of normal weight men ages 25 to 39 took medications. But among those 40 to 54, 60 percent of obese men were on medication, compared with 39.3 percent of men of average weight."
