what i'm challenging is the notion that 25% is what the cut off should be. who knows.

but to lump me in with the land whales demonstrates a flaw in the calculations

Nah, this is definitely true.

The flaws with "BMI" have been well known for a long time now. I'm not sure why mainstream medicine continues to use the metric, maybe it's just laziness?
