Heart disease: Your height could be a risk factor for developing the condition says study

1 min read


A study published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Genetics found that men shorter than five foot three inches were 65 percent less likely to develop blood clots than men taller than six foot two inches tall.

Superior height may also result in an increased risk of developing cancer, at least according to an article published in the Lancet.

This study, conducted in 2016, found that the risk of dying from cancer increased by four percent for every two and a half inches of height due potentially to increased organ size and signs of over nutrition.

Taller individuals were more likely to develop prostate cancer in men and breast, ovarian, endometrial and colon cancer in women.
