Lots Of People Can Only Guess Their Own Weight
Most people are not well informed when it comes to their own bodies.
40% can only guess their own weight, according to a new study out of England.
The study was conducted by Cardiomyopathy UK.
Researchers polled 2,000 adults and found the average person doesn’t start to seriously care about their health until they turn 37.
And while a third of the people polled say they are concerned about their lack of body knowledge, only 1-in-4 plan to do anything about it.
Half the people who took the poll didn’t know their own blood type.
Meanwhile, around 60% said they don’t know if their blood pressure is healthy and around the same amount said they couldn’t figure out their body mass index.
