Better living standards lead to humans growing taller
London, April 9 (ANI): A new study has revealed that better living standards lead to humans growing taller.
The research also found that while the Scots were taller than the English 200 years ago, they are now shorter, reports the Scotsman.
The study examined links between nutrition, economic development and height in Europe and North America since the early 1700s.
"Our work shows that there have been dramatic changes in child health, as reflected in achieved adult height, over the past 100 years, and other researchers have highlighted the existence of close links between improvements in child health and health in later life," said Prof. Bernard Harris, from the University of Southampton and author of the study.
"These changes have profound implications for developments in later-life health, longevity and economic performance over the coming century.
"Investments we make in the health of today's children can play a pivotal role in determining the economic wellbeing of future generations," he added. (ANI)
