Busy Minds and BMI info
Wednesday, March 25, 2020
First, I want to share this video from Dr John Campbell - it starts where he looks at statistical data around Body Mass Index. In the UK, people with a BMI of 40+ are in the vulnerable group for Covid-19. If you need any more motivation to keep Sparking - this might be it!
And I had two lovely message and photos from my son and d-i-l today.
My d-i-l is VERY skilled in the craft department. And she is making hundreds of face masks for the local hospital (they live nearby).
My son is VERY skilled in the technical department and is part of a group who have come up with a programme for 3D printing splash masks - which is open-source.
I'm VERY skilled at ............... well here's me doing PE with Joe Wicks this morning!
PS my BMI is 21.7
actually I'm very skilled at keeping the family communicating, being supportive and encouraging, and leading when I have to.
PPS I had to look up with the BMI stats for the UK were, in relation to the stats presented in the video.
76% over 65 and 72% over 70 are overweight or obese anyway - so being 71% of the cases in ICU is not surprising after all!
