These are all interesting datasets but I wish you hadn't chosen to make the plot border background transparent. The axis labels are unreadable on dark themes.
Only athletes competing in games after WWII

Interesting. TIL Ski jumping has the least variance in BMI for competitive female athletes and there's larger variance in BMI for martial arts than I would've expected.
New study finds that the BMI of adopted children correlates strongly with the BMI of their biological parents, not with the BMI of their adoptive parents. This finding suggests that obesity is transferred through genetics more than learned lifestyle choices.
Harmful effects of being overweight underestimated - the widely reported suggestion that being overweight may be healthy is shown to be incorrect, according to a new study that analysed body mass index (BMI), health and mortality data in around 60,000 parents and their children.
I just realised something amazing. The difference between me maintaining a healthy bmi and an obese bmi is 260 calories per day. That's all. 2-3 slices of bread a day makes the difference between obese and slim. Calculations inside.
TIL BMI is a terrible measure of individual health because it was never even intended to measure individual health but "to give a quick and easy way to measure the degree of obesity of the general population."
