A recent article in the Daily Mail suggested BMI was not a good measure of health?


Question:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/ar...

What do you think?

I'm Looking For Some Good 'Body Building' Web Sites, Can Anybody Help Me With This?

BMI is a very crude assessment. I know a number of people who go to my gym, are fatter than me (not that I am fat) but who are fitter.

The Daily Mail is not a good measurement of a newspaper.

Congratulations to our Scottish cousins.?

Well the Daily Mail get their knickers in a knot about every little thing, so I'd take what they say with a pinch of salt. It's a scaremongering rag for old biddies and the braindead. And for the record, they were wrong about the MMR jab. So there.

And Jonah Lomu isn't fat, he's built like a brick shitehouse and there's a difference.

Who will win this year's Super 14 rugby?

It doesn't measure stuff like cancer, of fitness. Just fatness. I've got a lowish BMI, but I'm far from fit. Muscle weighs more than fat anyway.

Where can I get LIVE coverage of the ALL BLACKS upcoming UK series while in the US (CA)?
