Adult height and the risk of cause-specific death and vascular morbidity in 1 million
people: individual participant meta-analysis.
Int J Epidemiol.
Height loss is related to the aging process, particularly in terms of changes in
the paravertebral musculoskeletal system, and it also appears to be related to sarcopenia,

report that muscle mass is independently associated with depressed mood, and furthermore,
the management of sarcopenia is linked to a reduction in depressive symptoms.
