Fat but long lived

Only a few deays ago, Australians were told that we are the fattest nation on earth. Today, a report in the news says that our life-expectancy is the second highest in the world (only the Japanese live, on average, longer than us). What a revelation...fat but long lived. Pity our indigenous population though, whose average life expectancy is still 17 years less than the rest of us. Shameful.
