Physiological class. In measurement. How and why might the Weight/height ratio be more valuable than BMI?

Weight/height ratio has been shown the better tool to predict the condition of cardiometabolic risk (high blood pressure ,diabetes,heart attack ,stroke than body mass index(BMI).The priciple behind the weight/height ratio system is to predict the cardiometabolic risk based on distribution of fat around the body. The abdominal fat has been seen to be a indicative factor for the heart,kidney and liver disease than the fat around the lower hip and bottom region. The inference drawn by the Weight/height calculation is that waist circumference should be half of your height in normal healthy people. The alteration in this ratio can be indicative of cardimetabolic risk.

Where as BMI is widley used tool to measure obesity which can be calculated by ratio of weight of the person and square of their height in meter .This method doesn't concentrate on the fat deposited in different parts of the body, it actually tell us the overall fat deposition in body irrespective of fat accumulation in the particular segment of body.Therfore, it is not the potent method to predict the cardiometabolic risk or other risk.

JAVA
The class will have a constructor BMI(String name, double
height, double weight).
The class should have a public instance method, getBMI() that
returns a double reflecting the person's BMI (Body Mass Index =
weight (kg) / height2 (m2) ).
The class should have a public toString() method that returns a
String like Fred is 1.9m tall and is 87.0Kg and has a BMI of
24.099722991689752Kg/m^2 (just print the doubles without special
formatting).
Implement this class (if you wish you...

The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a value calculated based on the
weight and the height of an individual. In a small European city, a
survey was conducted one year ago to review the BMI of the
citizens. In the sample
22
with 200 citizens, the mean BMI was 23.3 kg/m and standard
deviation was 1.5 kg/m . It is reasonable to
assume the BMI distribution is a normal distribution.

Body fat content is a more important indicator of health than is
weight-for-height.
Explain the above sentence with one example.

USING MATLAB: Create a BMI calculator application that reads the
user’s weight in pounds and height in inches (or, if you prefer,
the user’s weight in kilograms and height in meters), then
calculates and displays the user’s body mass index. Also, the
application should display the following information from the
Department of Health and Human Services/National Institutes of
Health so the user can evaluate his/her BMI:
BMI VALUES
("Underweight : Less than 18.5
Normal : between 18.5 and 24.9
Overweight...

Body mass index (BMI) is computed as the ratio of weight in
kilograms to the square of the height in meters. The
distribution of BMI is approximately normal for females aged 30-39.
In this group, the mean BMI is 24.5, with a standard deviation of
3.3.
13) What proportion of females aged 30-39 has a BMI of 25 or
more?
14) Persons with a BMI of 30 or greater are considered
obese. What proportion of females aged 30-39 is...
