BMI Body Mass Index Scam07/14/2009 NewRochelleTalkDevlin prdivoes a list of the Top 10 Reasons Why The BMI Is Bogus and prdivoes a description of the formula and the CDC Scale. Devlin points out that BMI was developed by a mathematician not a physician to help the Belgian government allocate government resources based on the obesity of the general population.The formula was created to match the government data; there is no physiological reason to square a person's height to determine fitness. The BMI ignores waist size which is the most obvious and clear-cut indicator of obesity level and makes no allowance for the relative proportions of bone, muscle and fat in the body of different individuals.The BMI is entirely illogical. The formula was created to fit the data; fat people will have a high BMI but a high BMI does not mean an individual is overweight, let alone obese. In fact, a high BMI could just as easily indicate a person is fit and healthy, with very little fat.
