Tall people have a lower risk of heart disease and high blood pressure, but are more likely to develop neurological diseases, skin and bone infections
According to a study published in the American Medical Center, a person’s height can increase or decrease the risk of various diseases.
The researchers obtained data on citizens in a health program that included genetic and health information from more than 200,000 whites and more than 50,000 blacks.
The study looked at more than a thousand possibilities and features, making it the largest research ever to prove the link between ‘height and disease’.
The results of the research confirm the results of relatively small-scale research studies conducted in the past.
Tall people have a lower risk of coronary heart disease and high blood pressure, but they have a higher risk of coronary heart disease or varicose veins.
According to research, tall people are also at risk of neurological diseases, while skin and bone infections can also occur, such as ulcers in the legs or feet.
