Ep 6 | B.S. Mass IndexJuly 12, 2016 Sabrena Jo, Billy Skorupski, and Matt Scanlon
We're all familiar with Body Mass Index (BMI). Perhaps you've used it as a practitioner or as a consumer of healthcare. But, what does BMI actually tell us? Where did it come from? Should we actually care about our BMI? As we learn in today's episode, the measure seems to have come to be the most prominent as a result of it's convenience and applicability in the days when being underweight was a greater threat than obesity. We calculate Matt's BMI live and discuss what this data means.
