For 60 years, scientists have debated whether there was a link between the growth of the person and the risk of diseases of the cardiovascular system.The researchers analyzed 52 published studies on this topic.Total 3 million people participated in them.The results showed that the low men are much more likely to happen heart attacks and develop severe forms of cardiovascular disease.In addition, low people 1.5 times more frequently than high die from these diseases.
course, high and low growth relative concept, so scientists have determined the boundaries of these definitions:
Based on the study results, the researchers reported that:
reason for this relationship between growth and cardiovascular disease is still not clear.There are many hypotheses, but none of them have not yet been confirmed.
It is believed that the low men relatively narrow artery.Recently using angiography was indeed shown that the diameter of the coronary arteries (arteries supplying the heart) depends on the height and weight.Narrow arteries much more easily clogged by thrombi and atherosclerotic plaques (as a result of poor nutrition, alcohol abuse and smoking) that lead to the development of cardiovascular diseases, in particular myocardial infarction.Thus, you may want to consider the increase as an additional risk factor.
On the other hand, the majority of long-lived low-growth, but lean.
People can not change your height or a genetic predisposition, but they can change their lifestyle and eliminate additional risk factors such as smoking, obesity, lack of exercise, alcohol abuse.
