Important Questions Related to Body Size and  Height

Samaras and his associates have sought to answer these questions:

Is the widespread bias favoring increased body size based on scientific evidence?

Are there advantages to being shorter and lighter in weight?

Are there survival benefits in avoiding the progressive trend in body size?

The Western diet is tied to increased height and body size, but why do many eminent  scientists attribute the high animal protein Western diet to increased chronic disease?

How Reventropy Associates got Started

In the 1970s, Tom Samaras, a configuration management systems engineer, applied the Second Law of Thermodynamics to the aging process. This well-established theory indicates that systems deteriorate faster with increasing body mass and energy intake. Tom interpreted this theory to meaning that increasing human body size and energy intake promoter faster cellular and organ deteriorating which led to accelerated aging. His hypothesis led to the collection of height and weight data on humans to determine whether increased height and weight led to reduced longevity. Over the years, he and his associates evaluated a variety of parameters related to human body size.

Note: The term “Reventropy” was created by Samaras from the words “Reversing Enropy” by shortening the word Reversing to Rev and combining it with entropy.
