BACKGROUND:

Although the expectation is that weight gain increases mortality and weight loss among those overweight reduces mortality, results on weight gain and mortality in young adults are conflicting, and weight loss is less explored. We investigated the association between long-term weight change and all-cause mortality in a broad range of body mass index (BMI) in young men.
