To the Editor: In their study of the association of physical activity and body mass index (BMI) with cardiovascular biomarkersin women, Dr Mora and colleagues1 concluded that high BMI was more strongly related to adverse cardiovascular biomarkers than was physical inactivity. This was based on the stronger association between high BMI and these biomarkers than physical inactivity and biomarkers: BMI had higher odds ratios (OR) than physical inactivity.
