Body mass includes fat, muscle, and bone in the body and the value of this index has been found to be important for human health. Since 1998 The World Health Organization (WHO) is introducing the use of BMI and to date, it is a widely used method for assessing obesity, the frequency of which is growing rapidly, and is reaching the size of a pandemic. It is one of the main problems of today. It is a major risk factor for the development of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.
