New NCD-RisC paper in Nature

NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC) published another important research! For this study, data from 2,325 population-based studies, with measurements of height and weight from 71 million participants aged 5–19 years, were analyzed  on the basis of rural and urban place of residence in 200 countries and territories from 1990 to 2020. It appears that the urban height advantage became smaller in most countries, and in many high-income western countries it reversed into a small urban-based disadvantage. The results show that in much of the world, the growth and developmental advantages of living in cities have diminished in the twenty-first century. Read the full paper on the following link.
