The study was aimed to estimate the effect of inbreeding on height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) in comparison with non‐inbred children.

TLDR
A comprehensive assessment provides the evidence for inbreeding depression on cognitive abilities among children. Expand
Relationship between cardiothoracic ratio and some selected anthropometric parameters in relation to gender in an adult Nigerian population
TLDR
The normal values of the cardiothoracic ratio (CTR) of healthy young adult Nigerians in a University setting in relation to gender was investigated and there was a significant positive correlation between CTR and other parameters measured except for height which had a significant negative correlation. Expand
Increased cardiovascular risks associated with familial inbreeding: a population-based study of adolescent cohort.
TLDR
This study suggests that inbreeding and sex are the key factors affecting cardiovascular profile, and can play a vital role in genetic counseling strategies for transforming the public opinion regarding the practice of consanguinity and its associated risks. Expand
Prevalence, risk factors and consequences of overweight and obesity among schoolchildren: a cross-sectional study in Kashmir, India
TLDR
Prevalence of obesity among children was high in the population of Kashmir, India and children with active lives in the form of vigorous or moderate exercise decreased their chances of gaining weight substantially. Expand
Relationship Between Maternal Bmi And Placental Weight In Relation With Foetal Outcome Amongst Neonates In Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State
TLDR
The mean neonatal birth weight, as recorded in the present study was within the acceptable range while the maternal body mass index was high as compared to the normal range (20-24.9kg/m2), which contributes to the birth weight of neonates in the current study. Expand
Prevalence of short stature, underweight, overweight, and obesity among school children in Jordan
TLDR
Variations in height and weight among Jordanian school children might be affected by socioeconomic status, and SS and underweight were most prevalent in the rural South, while obesity was highest in the Central region. Expand

The present paper deals with the effect of parental consanguinih; on the anthropometric measurements of children. 120 children of the Sheikh Siddiqui community of Rasoolpur Aanth village of theExpand
Body Mass Index (BMI) and Waist to Height Ratio (WHTR) for Prediction of Cardiovascular Diseases: Women at Higher Risk than Men in Jos
The problem of cardiac arrest and stroke in humans leading to paralysis or death are known to relate to the risk for certain diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type II diabetes,Expand
Body Mass Index (BMI) and Waist to Height Ratio (WHTR) for Prediction of Cardiovascular Diseases: Women at Higher Risk than Men in Jos
TLDR
The weights, heights and waists of 50 volunteers (25 males and 25 females) were carried out on people whose ages ranged between 19 and 75 years with the aid of a weighing balance and a measuring tape to study the risk of cardiac arrest and stroke in males and females. Expand

Effect of inbreeding depression on growth and fluctuating asymmetry in Turkish young males
TLDR
Although the inbred group is more asymmetric in terms of the observed bilateral traits, the differences are below the significance level, and the composite FA index shows that the inbreeding group isMore asymmetric and the difference is significant (P < 0.05). Expand
Evidence of Inbreeding Depression on Human Height
TLDR
It is predicted that multiple, rare, recessive variants influence human height, and the methodology developed is generally applicable to heritable quantitative traits (QT), paving the way for an investigation into inbreeding effects, and therefore genetic architecture, on a range of QT of biomedical importance. Expand
Application of Body Mass Index According to Height-Age in Short and Tall Children
TLDR
From late infancy to adolescent age, BMI distribution co-varies with height distribution and referencing to height-age appears appropriate within this age period, however, caution is needed when data about pubertal status are absent. Expand
Mean body weight, height, and body mass index, United States 1960-2002.
TLDR
Trends in national estimates of mean weight, height, and body mass index (BMI) from the National Health Examination and the National health and Nutrition Examination Surveys between 1960 and 2002 are presented. Expand
Inbreeding depression and intelligence quotient among north Indian children
TLDR
The assessment of inbreeding depression on the intelligence quotient among north Indian Muslim Children of school age shows the change of the mean follows genetic theory; however, the nature of the change in variance seems to be somewhat different. Expand
Inbreeding and risk of late onset complex disease
TLDR
The reported finding of greater inbreeding effects for traits such as blood pressure and serum cholesterol in middle age compared with early adult life is consistent with this. Expand
Body Mass Index, Diabetes, Hypertension, and Short-Term Mortality: A Population-Based Observational Study, 2000–2006
TLDR
Obesity-associated mortality risk was lower than estimated in studies employing older BMI data, and the mortality risk of diabetes was lower among mildly and severely obese persons than among those in lower BMI categories. Expand
Significant population variation in adult male height associated with the Y chromosome and the aromatase gene.
TLDR
The results suggest that in men, genetic variation in CYP19 and on the Y chromosome are involved in determining normal adult height, and that these loci may interact in an additive fashion. Expand
Sex-specific genetic effects influence variation in body composition
TLDR
Sex-specific genetic effects underlie sexual dimorphism in several body composition traits and are relevant for studies on the relationship of body composition with common diseases like cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes and for genetic association studies. Expand

TLDR
The influence of BMI on cardiovascular disease in women may be greater than previously thought and, although to a great extent explained by the influence of obesity on other risk factors, associated with adverse outcomes already at moderately increased body weight. Expand
