Does one’s height and weight influence how long one will live? With the availability of the unbiased data in the last decade, now this question can be answered. A very striking feature is the lower life expectancy of men when compared to women. Men are 8% taller than women, but women live 7.9% longer than the men (Samaras et al., 2003). Also, mortality is correlated to the height in a recent study conducted to examine six ethnic groups living in California (Table 1).
