Dr Naveed Sattar, Professor of metabolic medicine at the University of Glasgow says: "This is a well thought out point of view and I agree with the points made - people should not adopt a gluten-free diet on the basis that they think it will be beneficial to their health unless they have a diagnosis of a condition such as coeliac disease."

However, Professor Naveed Sattar, Professor of Metabolic Medicine at the University of Glasgow, says the findings "do not change advice we have been giving on obesity and its treatment and prevention".
He explains: "In recent years, as populations become more obese and with wider availability of cheap preventative medications many more such individuals are likely to be better treated for abnormal blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol and, if also present, type 2 diabetes, leading in turn to lower death risks." Being moderately overweight no protection from health problems Professor Sattar adds: "The current findings do not mean that being overweight is protecting you from death, far from it - rather, many confounding factors may give the current result and we know from many other studies that being overweight or obese does increase mortality risks, in the same way that it increases risk for many other conditions. Professor Sattar says that, while modern medicines may be helping obese people live longer than they might have done in the past, BMI cut-offs relating to obesity should not be redefined as a result. He adds: "We need a holistic view on obesity and societies should make it easier for individuals to make healthier lifestyle choices."

He adds: "This tax on its own, however, will not solve the obesity crises and we need more legislation to force food companies to make better quality food products and less unhealthy products which contain less fat, salt and sugar.
