    I think serious illness or death would accompany 1% BF.

    For extreme bodyfat measurements, it is better to talk about absolute fat weight instead of BF percentage.

    For example,

    - a 250lbs bber @ 3% BF would be carrying 7.5lbs of fat mass

    While,

    - a 160lbs bber @ 3% BF would be carrying 4.8lbs of fat mass


    The former is obviously more realistic than the latter.
    I believe there are some areas/organs of the body that have to contain some fat mass - 4.8lbs is just too low, whereas 7.5lbs is more or less realistic.

    Yes, like Ripped said. There is a certain amount of essential fat. Your organs require a certain amunt of fat in and around them. As Jake mentioned, there would be some serious health issues at that %.
