I mean, I see their point: Government intrusion into peoples`s`s personal lives and choices is a bad thing. HOWEVER, this `test` (and most of the site in general) seems to be telling people it`s OK to eat garbage and get huge, because of the athletes/celebrities who are classified `overweight/obese` because of their high BMI. Well, News Flash: The BMI test FAILS when applied to people with lots of muscle mass, simply because of how much denser muscle is when compared to fatty tissue. Which means the BMI test FAILS when applied to athletes/celebrities, simply because they tend to have high amounts of muscle mass. Weird how ConsumerFreedom neglects to mention that.
