Many Playboy Playmates have BMIs below 18, and they may be even healthier than those we have already examined. Experiments with laboratory animals (e.g., mice and monkeys) prove that greatly increased lifespans result from diets extraordinarily low in calories and high in nutrition. Animals fed such diets are also more active and vigorous than those in the sluggish control groups, and show biological signs of slower aging--such as minimal tissue damage from free radicals (dangerous oxidized byproducts of metabolism). These animal studies have prompted life extension experts to promote Calorie Restriction with Adequate Nutrition (CRAN) as a healthy diet. One of these life extension experts, Roy L. Walford, M.D., observed the results of CRAN on humans firsthand during his stay in the ill-fated BioSphere: The resident scientists' health improved markedly as their food rations dwindled due to crop failure. Walford went on to write popular books about CRAN, including "The 120-Year Diet" and "The Anti-Aging Plan: Strategies and Recipes for Extending Your Healthy Years". Though still controversial, the idea that very low BMIs are beneficial under the right circumstances is gaining respect in the scientific community. For example, the American Institute of Nutrition Comittee on Healthy Weight reported in 1994 that "many adults with a BMI less than 18 may be lean, fit and healthy". Playboy Playmates with BMIs below 18 appear to match this description perfectly, and their active lifestyles are consistent with the results seen in the aforementioned animal experiments. These rigorously selected women represent the pinnacle of health and give us an inspiring glimpse of our own potential for maximum longevity. If you want to see absolute perfection in the female form, you need search no further than Playboy pictorials and videos of these models. Here are the ones to look for:

(It is impossible to resist noting that Angela Little is one of the most aptly named Playmates at just 5 feet, 2 and a half inches tall and 95 pounds.)

Until recently, the word "waif" was defined as a homeless person, but in today's parlance "waif" usually means an extraordinarily slender individual. Models with this attribute are often used in advertising--even elevated to the lofty rank of "supermodels"--and yet there has been much backlash lately in the press against companies that present waifs as the embodiment of physical perfection. This backlash is nothing but "sour grapes", an unscientific, emotional response by people who find it easier to complain about others than to improve themselves. To achieve maximum longevity, we must all become waifs. Playboy Magazine should be lauded for promoting this wholesome ideal.
