Dr Oz: Issues With The BMI Calculator
Dr Oz put four women up on pedestals and before the show, had his audience vote on where they fell on the BMI scale. The women are either underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese. He shared that 80% of his audience said that at least 2-3 of the women were normal weight. In actuality, all of the women were considered overweight according to the BMI calculator. He said the problem actually isn’t the women, it’s the scale.
