Undersized men are prone to suicide

July 5 2005

Men of small stature twice as likely to commit suicide, compared with higher, this was a study conducted by a team of Medicine Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, headed by a professor.

With an increase in the growth of suicide risk declines, says a team of researchers headed by Professor Patrick Magnusson of the Medical Institute Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm.

Specific data on what is meant by "large" and "small" in terms of the centimeter, the study does not provide, however, the authors studied the statistics, covering 1.4 million Swedish men. They found that for every additional five centimeters of growth of the risk of suicide decreased by 9%.

Magnusson group emphasizes that the relationship has been confirmed only in young and middle age. To men of retirement age, as well as to women, these figures do not include. This writes NEWSru.
