BMI report cards? We can do better than that!

There is a disturbing trend these days to start to have the schools track students’ Body Mass Indices (BMI’s) and issue them like grades on report cards. 

Okay, where do I start with this one?  Well first of all, BMI has significant issues and is generally NOT the best measure of health and fitness, or overall disease risk.  Secondly…don’t the schools have enough to worry about without having an additional burden placed on them?  Why don’t we rely on doctors to keep track of health related metrics? 

Hear what I have to say about this in the video below:
