They have a shorter lifespan. !

They have a different calorie intake (higher) from other Japanese people.

They are wrestlers, they train constantly.
So their fat is mostly on the outside, unlike regular fatties, who have fat all over their inside and around their organs.
Below their outer fat, sumo wrestlers are all muscle.
