  1. Does anyone know whether there ever was any evidence for the definition of “normal”, in the rather odd sense of desirable, weight?

  2. As far as I know, the base establishment of BMI methodology is unrelated to health or lifespan.

    Athletes can be considered the healthiest amongst us, yet they have BMI values that run off both ends of the scale.

    Additionally there are ethnic adjustments that need to be made, different ethnic groups have different propensities to certain illnesses rather than those associated with high or low BMI.

    It’s been said before that “slightly overweight” is actually good.

  3. As for your description of market prices as “not perfect–just the best around”–it’s just how I would have put it if asked to describe myself.
