    Yes, this is correct. 

    And the way you wrote it, is like poetry. Music to my ears!

    It's almost as though a band of angels with golden harps sang it from the heavens as you rode on your mighty chariot with your pen in your hand and an Ak47 in the other.

    Yes, this is correct. It's rather formal, but I assume you're using the sentence in a technical report, rather than in friendly chat over your lunchtime sandwiches.

    A hyphen in "risk factor" is optional.

    no, "risk-factor" is one word, not two.

    and its formality makes it unclear.

    "Obese people are more likely to have diabetes" would be better

    Yes it is correct, in grammar. That does not mean it is factual
