Body mass Index (BMI) has been a useful tool in determining obesity for many years but we have always known it has its limitations.

And more importantly, it does not tell us where the fat is deposited.
This is vital information as researchers have found having a larger waist circumference increases the risk of death from any cause! And around the waist is where we increasingly tend to store fat with age.
