Quality of life ? If by that you mean the ability to move around and perform daily functions, active life expectancy is growing faster than life expectancy. So, in a sense, not only are we living longer, but we are healthier than ever.

So you are saying that with all other things being equal you believe a person that is 20, 50, or 100 pounds overweight has an equal quality of life to a person that is a healthy weight?
