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.

Unquestionably believe that which you said.
Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just don't know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing
without having side effect , people can take a signal.

Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Heya terrific website! Does running a blog such as this require a
lot of work? I have no understanding of coding but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
Anyways, should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.
I know this is off subject nevertheless I just had to ask.
Kudos!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
or copyright violation? My website has a lot
of exclusive content I've either written 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 stop content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.
