Abstract

Stature is a quantitative measure of physique and indicative of physical growth and development of an individual. It also provides insight into various features of a population including nutrition, health and genetics. The present hypothesis states that the drastic decrease in physical activity over a long period of time may result in decrease in stature of individuals. A case of farmers in Punjab State of north India has been discussed where following a drastic decrease in physical activity, a decline in stature has been observed.
