Julie - do you know if anyone has ever looked at the numbers in each BMI category of body fat percentages? For people with heavier builds to skew longevity data like that, you'd either have a have a highly unrandomized sample (mostly bigger build folks) or the effect of being heavier-built on longevity would have to be so big as to make the average healthier, even if the just overweight/normal build folks were equally or less healthy than the normal weight folks.
