An easy way to gauge your health is to
compare your current height and weight to the BMI chart.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from a person's
weight and height. BMI is a reliablei ndicator of body fatness
for people. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research
has shown that BMI correlates to direct measures of body fat.
The World Health Organization reports,
"Raised BMI also increases the risks of cancer of the breast,
colon, prostate, kidney and gallbladder. Chronic overweight and
obesity contribute significantly to osteoarthritis, a major cause
of disability in adults." The Health and Human Services
released the 2005 Dietary Guidelines stating,
"To reduce the trend toward obesity, most adults need to
eat fewer calories, be more active and make wiser food choices."
