In medical school I was basically trained to believe that BMI and badness were linearly linked. Not so. I like this review article. It took me a long time of reading and researching and seeking out the stuff I was never exposed to in my training to get this… What say you?
Is the epidemiology of weight a crisis or moral panic? (from journal of epidemiology…)
There are lots of points I like, one being that when “experts” gather to discuss the epidemiology and risks of weight, they rarely invite an epidemiologist along for the ride…
Many of these experts also have major conflict of interests.
