    Lesbians are 2.7 times more likely to be overweight and 2.5 times more likely to be obese than heterosexual women according to a study from Boston University's School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Bisexual women were no more likely than straight women to be overweight or obese. Comment

    Comment: I assume it is due to hormones

    I assume that the same hormonal profile associated with a woman a lesbian, is also responsible for the increased likelihood of being overweight or obese.
