There IS research out there that shows that people who are SLIGHTLY overweight are healthier than those who are on the lower end of their healthy BMI. The key there is slightly. There's also the whole waist/hip ratio that is supposed to be a predictor. There are so many conflicting measurements of what's healthy and what's not, its crazy.
