Question
Where can I get a copy on the internet?Thanks!

Answer
Hi Randy,


Here is the link for the official growth charts for children and babies http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/clinical_charts.htm

Once you're an adult, it goes more by height for weight and age doesn't come into play as objectively.
Here is the link for adult desirable weights. http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/BMI/bmi_tbl.htm

Hope that answers your question!
