    BMIs are not accurate for many people.

    Good article. BMI is greatly over rated. Overall health without drugs is so much better.

    BMI is helpful know, but like anything else, it has to be a part of a WHOLE picture, not the focus. Great article!

    I think the BMI can be misleading.

    Well, I think considering where you are in a range of BMI is helpful. And commons sense on any measurement is required.

    I agree BMI is a 100 year old dinosaur- health not weight.. I have lost 176lbs and if I go to the weight for my height my doctor is threatening to prescribe me all over plastic surgery..
    I have undergone 7 operations while lossing weight for removing tumours behind my right ear. The doctors checking my vitals for the operations called me in and congratulated me on improving my health..
    I will never be a skinny women- but I don't have to worry about BMI, I am as clean on the inside as a overweight person can get and can out exercise people half my age thats what counts..
    The age of our body within... My dad never had problems holding his weight- he was technically underweight- but thin fat.. He ate alot of bad food to hold on to his weight- he died at the age of 65 with the insides of a 90 year old..
