The Insanity of BMI

Kate Hard­ing cre­at­ed this very cool slide show to show just how absurd it is to rely on body mass index to deter­mine whether or not peo­ple are at a healthy weight.

BTW — I did not “miss” blog­ging yes­ter­day. Feb­ru­ary 29 was the only “day of rest” for Blog365, so I took it 🙂 It felt odd, though!

  1. That’s real­ly nifty. 

    And I’m quite amused at the blog365 day of rest 🙂 It makes per­fect sense, though.

  2. I am in the flickr col­lec­tion for BMI, but she did not use me in the Slideshow. I was intro­duced to size accep­tance a while ago, and it has real­ly changed how I look at health and weight 🙂
