Researchers in Israel found when late teens are obese their risk of cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality in adulthood increases significantly. Here are a few of the hazard ratios:

  • Coronary heart disease deaths: HR 4.9
  • Total cardiovascular mortality: HR 3.5
  • Death from stroke: HR 2.6
  • Sudden death: HR 2.1

Interestingly, the impact of teenage obesity was seen by middle-age, well before cardiovascular deaths are the greatest.
