RE: What Are The Long Term Metabolic Effects Of Childhood Malnutrition?
From first-hand experience, I noticed that children from well-to-do families are usually taller than their counterparts which I think boils down to the diet/nutrition of them compared to the almost non-existent one of the poor families. Even when the poor family children later catch on in life and experience a better food/diet, their height never gets to that of the more affluent family's offspring. Of course, this was never an experiment carried out, just something I experienced which I guess may just be my mind playing tricks on me.
But are there any scientific explanation for this?
