Abstract

The Cancer Prevention Study II indicated that obesity might be associated with a smaller increase in the relative rate of mortality in African-Americans compared with whites. The absolute death rate in obese whites, however, was not higher than in obese African-Americans. Avoidance of obesity remains sound advice.
