Re: Covid-19 has made the obesity epidemic worse, but failed to ignite enough action
Neither the autho, nor the two Rapid Responders have differentiated between being obese and being overweight.
Most, if not all, readers will be aware that you can be overweight as a result of having heavy skeletal mass.
Secondly, the author and the two responders might like to consider the role of thymic involution in determining resistance to infection?
I have no personal knowledge but I have read about it (in the BMJ).
Competing interests: I am very old. I am not obese. So, far I have been spared the various bacterial and viral infections. Future? Who knows?
