Waist to height ratio

Waist to height ratio calculatorWaist to height ratio is a simple measurement for assessment of lifestyle risk and overweight. Compared to just measuring waist circumference, waist to height ratio is equally fair for short and tall persons. This calculator is valid for children and adults.

Instructions:
1. Measure your waist circumference at a horizontal line one inch above your belly button.
2. Enter waist circumference and height by turning the dials.

Ratio
0.47
OK
Waist
inches
80
Height
ft' in''
170

Background:

Measuring waist to height ratio is gaining popularity in the scientific society as several studies have found that this is a more valid measurement than BMI. Just measuring waist circumference is inherently biased for people taller or shorter than average population.

This calculator uses the criteria for interpretitation suggested by Ashwell.

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd
ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing
a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the
same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each
other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but
it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without
my permission. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content
from being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.
