Ridiculous Study of the Week: BMI Matters

In startling a news, a new study says that “Body Mass Index is a helpful in assessing a person’s overall health”.  Wow! Shocker!

    If you didn’t write it down, you didn’t do it.

    And if it hasn’t been demonstrated by a (half-assed, drug-company-funded) study, it isn’t real.

    That pretty much sums up modern medicine.
