Body mass index 24 to 25.

9 Chinese people have the lowest risk of death

A new study says the body mass index is between 24 and 25.

The risk of Chinese death between 9 is the lowest.

According to the current popular rating standards, Chinese people’s body mass index exceeds 24 is overweight.

銆€銆€One height is 1.

Chinese men who are 75 meters and weigh 74 kilograms, is the weight exceeding the standard?

According to the body mass index (also known as body mass index, BMI) rating and current standards, this young man with a body mass index greater than 24 will be diagnosed as “overweight.”

However, if a new medical research sample is established, it may mean that the current BMI overweight standard is too harsh for the Chinese.

銆€銆€An article published in the latest issue of the Canadian Medical Association (CMAJ) reported that the BMI was between 24 and 25.

The Chinese mortality rate between the 9 is the lowest.

銆€銆€BMI is recognized worldwide as an grading method for assessing excessive levels. The specific calculation method should be the weight per thousand divided by the square of the height in meters (kg / M2).

At present, the definition of overweight and obesity is mainly based on the reference situation, that is, BMI exceeds 25 for overweight, over 30 is superfluous, and ideal variable is 21, less than 18.

5 is too low weight.

The World Health Organization recommends a defined standard for overweight and obesity in the Chinese population. Many people now believe that Chinese BMI is overweight at 24.

銆€銆€Obesity patients have seen significant growth throughout the world.

According to estimates by the World Health Organization, by 2015, 2.3 billion adults worldwide will be overweight, and more than 700 million adults will suffer from obesity.

Both overweight and hypertension increase the risk of developing high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and other chronic diseases.

銆€銆€The ongoing research brought together researchers from Taiwan and the United States to investigate 58738 Chinese men and 65,718 Chinese women over the age of 20 in Taiwan to find a relationship between BMI and mortality.

The researchers found that the BMI was between 24 and 25.

The Chinese mortality rate between the 9 is the lowest.
The BMI with the lowest mortality rate is 22.

5 to 24.


銆€銆€鈥淐ompared to those with intermediate BMI levels, people with a BMI of a minority or higher have to face a higher risk of death,鈥?said Dr. Lin Wenyuan, Ph.D., of China Medical University in Taiwan, who wrote in the report.”Our preliminary analysis and sensitivity analysis results are consistent with other studies that show support for the definition of overweight and obesity in Chinese adult populations.

Professor Zhu Shankuan of Zhejiang University School of Public Health pointed out in a special commentary published in the current issue that this research challenged the current definition of overweight and obesity in China.

銆€銆€鈥淭he average current BMI score of the Chinese is 23, and more than 24 is considered overweight.

However, the lowest BMI obtained this time is even higher than that of some western countries. Does this mean that Chinese people have to gain weight?

Zhu Shankuan said in an interview with Caixin reporter. “It is still too early to read the newspaper. We need more data to verify.”

“The researchers also found that subjects with BMI below 24 and chronic disease were at higher risk of death than those without chronic disease.

Those who had chronic disease but had a higher BMI (more than 30) had a higher mortality rate than the normal population, but gradually reduced the number of people with chronic diseases but below BMI.

BMI smokers are also more likely to die.

銆€銆€However, Zhu Shankuan believes that the low BMI is the direct cause of the high mortality rate, or an intermediate factor affecting the mortality rate, which is currently uncertain.

銆€銆€”Some say that a person is ill, his BMI will be low.

But the individual died in the end because of illness, not because of the low BMI.

He said, “In terms of racial differences, under the same BMI, Chinese people have slightly more abdominals than obesity, which means that Chinese should adopt BMI as a standard for overweight and redundancy.”

Using BMI to analyze mortality is not the best indicator, waist circumference, waist to hip ratio may be better than BMI.
