"[Body mass index] BMI at ages 30 to 49 years predicted mortality after ages 50 to 69 years, even after adjustment for BMI at age 50 to 69 years" notes the report Storing Up Problems: The Medical Case for a Slimmer Nation by the Royal College of Physicians. They note that this could help to explain why poor people are more likely to be obese in developed countries. REFERENCE
