“One of the studies was ours, which we did about four years ago,” he said. “At that time, we had an idea that the BMI was not the best way to assess cardiovascular problems. We faced resistance from publishers at that time, but we found other studies confirming it.”

Blame the publishers!

Even with the “waist size” that some of the calculators use it seems like a superfluous measurement. Face it: If you look like a fat tub of of lard, guess what? You ARE a fat tub of lard.
