Body height and mortality

Adult body height is largely determined by genetics, but also by dietary factors, which in turn depend on socioeconomic status and lifestyle. This project aims at examining the association between adult body height and all-cause and cause specific mortality in Switzerland with a focus on cultural variations in these associations.
