What is BMI?

Body Mass Index (BMI) has been utilised by the medical profession as a pointer of adult health and wellness in terms of the ratio of their height and weight. Excessive weight places a person at significantly greater risk of developing a large range of health concerns, for instance heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, high blood pressure and kidney disease, while being under a healthy weight can increase their risk of brittle bones (osteoporosis ), and iron deficiency among other things.
