Female students shed weight
Teenage girls who want to lose weight should try studying, an Austrian survey has suggested. A health survey of 6,000 people found 23 per cent of female respondents who had graduated from high school or university were slightly below normal weight. Another 5 per cent were seriously underweight. Of women who had left school at 15, fewer than 10 per cent were underweight.
