Summary of "The association between obesity and cardiovascular disease mortality in different strata of socioeconomic position: evidence from pooled Norwegian health surveys."

Socioeconomic position (SEP) is related to both obesity and cardiovascular disease (CVD). There is little evidence on whether SEP modifies the relation between obesity and CVD. The aim of the study was to investigate whether the association between obesity and CVD mortality is stronger among people with disadvantaged than among people with advantaged life course SEP.
