Moderately overweight people have lower rates of early death than those who are normal weight. Ignore the NHS out of date guidance and follow the latest data. JAMA. 2016;315(18). According to the latest research using real data the threat to people's survival from being obese was now almost negligible compared to 'normal' weight. Prof Borge Nordestgaard advised overweight people need not be quite as worried about their weight as before. The NHS Health Check has invested millions in testing healthy people for potential disease without evidence the Health Check works. The initial data and review indicated the predicted results were exaggerated to the reality. It defies common sense that people do not understand healthly lifestyles, The NHS Health Check provides no significant warning to most people. Everyone it picks up as high risk will know they are high risk from their own knowledge of their lifestyle, drinking, smoking, eating, and exercise habits plus family histories of illness. The motivation offered by NHS Health check which is completed within 20 minutes is useless and ill-informed. The majority of invitations are ignored.
