WHAT IS BODY MASS INDEX?
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of Disease Control (CDC), one of America's leading government agencies protecting the health of our citizens, Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from a person’s weight and height. BMI provides a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.
There is no doubt that obesity is one of the major health problems in our country. America's loves for high calorie fast food and a lack of regular exercise means as much as 80% of adults are overweight compared to world standard.
