The BMI is an incredibly inaccurate representation of body weight and overall health. It can be accurate for most situations, but in the event of a body builder being an even 6' and weighing in at 210 lbs they're technically overweight. Any doctor would call bullshit on that.

That said, this seems to be an attempt to counteract obesity. Never dealt with obesity personally so I can't really come from a first-person point of view on the matter, but it sounds like the special Olympics.

40 BMI is ridiculous, pretty sure there wont be body builder boy scouts there either. but even if there was, they are being examined by doctors i thought, and so as long as the doctor deems them to be in good health, it should be okay. Its not just based of BMI i thought

BMI is the new addition that they're making to the requirements, hence why I made the comparison.

Still, anybody who believes there's any reverence in the boy scouts past getting the kid off the Xbox either lives in the early 90s or hasn't heard of the recent rash of pedophiles. Obesity can be a good thing!
