For example an obese person with a BMI of 32 had a 52% increase risk of ischemic heart disease compared with someone with a normal BMI of 24. If you don’t know your BMI you can go to www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/obesity/BMI/bmicalc.htm. If it is 25 or higher you should make health choices to loose weight; for better health!
