For what reasons was the BMI calculator even invented?

For studies: In order to study obesity, one has to have a definition of what it means to be obese. You can't simply use weight, as 200 lb might be obese for some people but would be a thin person if their height was 6 ft 8 in. Bmi takes into account height and weight.

How accurate are these Framingham cardiac risk calculators for 35 old males?

How accurate are these Framingham cardiac risk calculators for 35 old males?

Not great.: The risk factors analyzed statistically aren't explaining the outcomes. BUT 1) we know it's age related and 35 is low risk. 2) prior personal history explains things better than risk models (if previous personal heart disease risk zooms up). 3) http://www.cvriskcalculator.com/ ...Read more
