    BMI is a terrible predictor of health for a variety of reasons — one reason is that it varies across racial groups. (Also across gender, age, etc.) So this policy would, for example, hit harder groups like Asians and blacks, who tend to have higher BMIs (without being less healthy).

  2. Ah, I see. I did not realize the race group correlation, although I am certainly aware about how essentially useless BMI is as a predictor of health.
