    “BMI is not a perfect measure,” says Dr. Cerhan. “It doesn’t discriminate lean mass from fat mass, and it also doesn’t say anything about where your weight is located. We worry about that because extra fat in your belly has a metabolic profile that is associated with diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.”

    BMI has always been a horrible excuse of measurement.

    BBC has a very informative documentary on obesity. It effectively elaborates the factors causing obesity and how to avoid it.

    Doctors are loath to admit it but there are many areas of medicine that would be aided with technology like this.
