I read that on the average short people live longer than tall people. I forgot the details, but I think they said something about the blood having travel a further distant in tall people.
However, I read someplace else that on the average slim people live longer than not-slim people. I’m sure it is because the heart has to work harder lugging all those extra pounds for the not-so-slim people.
I also noticed that over all, there are more tubby short people than there are tall people.
I have come to this conclusion. You are going to die of something either sooner or later.
Enjoy the ride.
