That's something we can heartedly agree on then; as I mentioned above I don't feel BMI is an effective tool for measuring a person's body composition. While the use of a faulty measurement might mean that some people on the low end of the requirements (~30BMI) don't actually have the disease, it doesn't mean that the disease doesn't exist, or that those who have a later stage of the disease won't have symptoms. It just means some people are being incorrectly diagnosed.
