Girl is in a bad mood and not tall

Human researchers in New York, USA randomly selected 716 children, roughly equal in gender, and selected them for a 9-year follow-up survey.

It turns out that girls who are emotionally depressed will be disturbed in height in the future. This connection is most intense in girls who are diagnosed with depression when they are 11-20 years old.

But this connection is not apparent in boys.

  Researchers analyzed that poor mood affects the secretion of growth hormone, which reduces the level of muscle and bone growth.

The big effect on girls may be that female hormones play a role.
