The drawing below was done by http://wellingtongrey.net, the data taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=image:bmi30chart.png&oldid=107854217.

one question: if one is a resident of one country, and a citizen of another, which country takes credit for one’s obesity?

the chart itself can be found @ http://www.wellingtongrey.net/miscellanea/archive/2007-05-06–world-fatness.png

  1. Yael,

    BMI is a bunch of baloney.

    See this blog entry that neatly summarizes a recent Penn & Teller: Bullshit! episode:

    And if you’ve got Showtime and want to watch the Bullshit! episode on Obesity, you can find the air dates here:

    Pass the chocolate!
