OECD and Malaysia: Body Mass Index

Body Mass Index is a statistical measure of the weight of a person scaled according to height.

8 kinds of food intake were analysed on their impact on BMI mean values and prevalence of BMI>30.

Let’s see, what are the food can make more people overweight (BMI>30)? Chicken meat! Cow meat? A little. And fruit?? Moderately strong positive influence on making more people overweight. Explantion? I wonder why too…

Rice and vegetable will make BMI value lower, while chicken meat and cow meat the opposite trend.
