Everyone wants a good height, male or female. But there are also people who only like average height. Height depends on genetics, hormones, lifestyle. A recent study found that people who are taller are at risk of more than 100 diseases. Researchers have found that being high increases the risk of heart rhythm-related diseases, varicose vein-related diseases, nerve damage and stomach ulcers.

The research involved 2.5 lakh men and women. The risk was found in men and women 5 feet 9 inches or more tall, according to the researchers. These people also had higher risk of skin-bone infection, blood clotting, fungal infections. Researchers say that lifting more weight puts more pressure on the bones, muscles and legs, which increases the risk of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and many other diseases in tall people. The risk was higher for men who were 5 feet 9 inches or taller and for women who were 5 feet 3 inches or taller.

Scientists at Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center ask why taller people get more diseases. It doesn't give much information about it, but some experts say that it is very important to pump blood well to keep the body healthy. Now in such a situation blood is pumped from the body of people who are tall. This slows down the blood flow and causes them to have physical problems.

The researchers published their findings in PLOS Genetics and reported that high altitude increased the risk of atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) and varicose veins. These diseases also include peripheral neuropathy. It is a condition in which parts of the body are damaged. People with this disease may experience numbness, tingling and even pain in any part of the body. In general, taller people can get more diseases. Scientists also found that height increased the risk of bone-stomach infections and stomach ulcers.

The author of the study, Dr. A total of 100-110 different diseases have been identified in people with high altitude, Sreedharan Raghav told MailOnline. Dr. "We have come to the conclusion that their high altitude can be a factor in many common ailments in adults," Sridhar added. A person's height is determined by a variety of factors, including his or her heredity, which may indicate whether he or she is tall or short, but lifestyle is also very important. The risk of such diseases is less if the person has a good diet and lifestyle.
