HideShow timer Statistics

Researchers have recently come across a phenomenon that they have named “the obesity paradox”. The body mass index (BMI) is used as a statistical measurement to estimate healthy body weight and a high BMI is linked with multiple cardiovascular diseases. However, research data indicate that overweight people with a high BMI, compared to people with a normal BMI, have the lowest risk of cardiovascular mortality.

Which of the following, if true, most helps to explain the paradoxical findings stated in the passage?

A. Research shows that BMI divides the weight too much in short people, making short people think they are thinner than they actually are.
B. People diagnosed with obesity are two times more likely to be preemptively prescribed cardioprotective medications than people with normal weight.
C. There was little difference between the genetic predisposition to cardiovascular diseases for all the patients studied irrespective of whether they were over or underweight.
D. The data also showed that sleep deprivation, a condition related with cardiac failure, was prevalent in most people studied under the research.
E. The researchers also found that the risk of cardiovascular mortality was the highest in underweight patients.

If obese people are two times more likely to be preemptively prescribed cardioprotective medications, they will have lower risk of cardiovascular mortality than people with normal BMI.
Thanks to the doctors, who anticipated the onset of cardiovascular mortality in overweight patients and took precautionary measures.
