Body Fat Tester
What does body fat mean?  Why is it important to measure the body fat?

Body fat is the extra energy (i.e., calories) that you eat that is not used in your daily activities. High levels of body fat cause the body's internal systems to work unduly hard, thus significantly increasing the risk of heart attacks, strokes, hypertension, diabetes and certain types of cancers (reference: NIH, 1985 Consensus Report).

Fortunately, body fat is readily controllable by reasonable eating habits coupled with moderate exercise. However, the key to body fat control is knowledge -- i.e., periodically measuring your percent body fat and comparing it to recommended values, which allows you to steer your health in the right direction.
