A recent study which suggested that being overweight can lead to a longer life has caused controversy among obesity experts.

One expert labelled the findings a “pile of rubbish” while another said it was a “horrific message” to put out, the BBC reported.

The study, which has been in the Journal of the American Medical Association, suggested that the overweight people were less likely to die prematurely than people with a “healthy” weight.
