AHA Statement Addresses Best Methods to Assess Adiposity

More validation of the BMI, with Big Sick Care, trying to usurp your responsibility to measure it and charge you for the "service."
Body-mass index (BMI) and waist-circumference measurements should remain the primary tools for assessing adiposity in the population, according to a new scientific statement from the American Heart Association (AHA). Individuals with a high BMI or those with a disproportionately high waist circumference for any given BMI should be examined by clinicians for further risk stratification and targeted with lifestyle interventions, including weight loss, according to experts.
Don't pay the sick care industry anything.

Calculate your own BMI here, for example.
