The research that this BMI infographic is based on found that a BMI between 20.0 and 24.9 is associated with the lowest risk of mortality from any cause in healthy non smoker adults.

The researchers also included accurate estimates of the increased risk of death of overweight and obese individuals in comparison to individuals with a BMI of 20.0 to 24.9. Earlier research which looked at the risks of being overweight had been inconclusive, with a few revealing only a slightly higher risk of death while others showed a lower risk.
