Church: The land of girth?

It's been observed from the dawn of Pentecost that eating and Christians have had a very close-knit relationship. 

If there is anything that Christians have collective passion for outside of Christianity itself, is eating. 

And unsurprisingly, the L.A. Times recently released a report  that suggests religious young adults are more likely to be overweight.

Obviously, a correlation shouldn't be regarded as a causation, and the speculations seem very suspect and unscientific, but the study is interesting nonetheless.

At the same time haven't I read somewhere that people who attend church regularly live longer than people who don't attend? I remember one missionary saying that when Korean's came to Christ their disposable income went up dramatically because they no longer drank, gambled, etc. I guess that means they had more money to buy food.
