In case you needed another reason to get to the gym and eat right a recent study found that being obese increases your odds of dying if you are in a car accident. The article can be found here. The full text of the article from the emergency Medicine Journal can be found here. Interestingly there is some additional risk to being an underweight male as well although not as much as being overweight. Women seem to have more risk if overweight as well which is interesting. So get to the gym and for God sake put down that snickers bar before you kill yourself on the road!!
