Abstract

Studies consistently find that patients with severe infectious diseases have a reduced mortality if they are overweight or obese. This «obesity paradox» has lead clinicians and researchers to argue that a high body mass index (BMI) is indeed protective. But is this seemingly protective effect really true? We address this question in a Mendelian randomization study of the association between BMI and sepsis mortality.
