Shorter men live longer

Shorter men live longer

According to a study on the height, weight, and age at death of 373 men, obtained from records at the Veterans Administration Medical Center, San Diego, CA, USA:

  • Men of height 175.3 cm or less lived an average of 4.95 years longer than those of height over 175.3 cm.
  • Men of height 170.2 cm or less lived 7.46 years longer than those of at least 182.9 cm.

It's science.

An analysis by weight difference revealed a 7.72-year greater longevity for men of weight 63.6 kg or less compared with those of 90.9 kg or more.

This corroborates earlier evidence and contradicts the popular notion that taller people are healthier.
