BMI Part Three: Real Measures of Health
7/31/2012 4:11:49 PM

Just since I have been writing this series on BMI more information and research has been presented.  On one side a recently published Plos One article proposed lowering the BMI categories for obesity to 24 for women and 28 for men!  (You should be outraged!  At that point practically everyone would be obese.) On the flip side a new study was recently published from the University of California Davis that found it is better to be overweight than underweight. The study found that a person is at lower risk of mortality while in the overweight BMI category rather than the underweight BMI category. In fact, risk of mortality did not increase until a person’s BMI went above 35. So what does all this mean and what should you really consider when you are concerned about your health or the health of a loved one?
