Recently, Seventeen magazine posted a BMI calculator on its website. The BMI levels, when compared with the Center For Disease Control's levels, are extremely low. BMI is a very controversial subject, with disagreement about whether it's valid or not. But Seventeen has been blasted for basically telling underweight girls that they are normal, and normal girls that they are fat. And I think we can all agree that's not a healthy message.

WTF?

BMI should be used as an approximation... considering muscle weighs more than fat, varying bone structures, heritage and genetic traits can all affect what is and isn't healthy for an individual regarding weight.
