Longitudinal study of anthropometric changes with aging in an urban Italian population


Longitudinal study of anthropometric changes with aging in an urban Italian population



Homo 49(3): 241-259



ISSN/ISBN: 0018-442X

A sample of 162 Italian urban adults was studied twice, 10 years apart. Changes in anthropometric traits were described within sex and age groups. The influence of environmental factors on the development of traits with age was examined on the basis of comparison among subsamples characterized by different social and behavioural situations. The results suggest that physical activity, a higher educational level and no smoking may determine a decrease in biological aging. The importance of blood-pressure as a bio-marker is also pointed out through our data analysis.
