Having recently had a medical and been told my BMI at 33.1 was too high I decided to look up BMI on Wikipedia. On the site you are led to the BMI calculator on this site.
I have to say that there is a flaw in the metric calculations as the denominator should be 2 times your height and not height squared.
Please try this out with my vitals which are 16st 7lbs (231lbs)(105 kgs) and 5'10"(70inches)(1.57metres)
I believe the WHO as well as Wikipedia use this incorrect calculation, please correct me if I am wrong.
