Writing my essay about obesity was a very informational experience. I learned a lot more about how genes affect the chances of obesity. I also realized that the reason the United States might be ranked among the most obese countries is because of how it is measured. BMI or body mass index is a measurement that has been used for a very long time to determine your health. But the issue is that BMI does not take muscle into consideration, so someone who may weigh a lot  but have a large amount of muscle and not fat may be considered obese. Which seems very wrong and inaccurate.
