Normal Weight People With Belly Fat More Likely To Die

Not possible. All people are 100% likely to die.
A person of normal body weight who has excess belly fat is more likely to die prematurely than an obese person with a fair spread of fat around the body, researchers from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. explained at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2012 in Munich, Germany. Dr. Francisco Lopez-Jimenez said that people with a high waist-to-hip ratio, i.e. those with big bellies, but whose BMI (body mass index) are of normal weight, are more likely to die from a cardiovascular event or any cause than anybody else.
But, there is some sense to this.

If you are a little person and all fat, you are probably in a worse position than a big person who is fatty and has some muscle.
