What is the focus of anthropometry?

Merving people about food consumption: @nick 115t- everything the subject ate in the

last 24 hrs

(3upper-arm circumference. Are you undernourished> undernourished people have + very thin arms

Are you too far below

- normal? Normal-vise ang height weight of a reference person

What is the correlation between weight and good nutrition?

or median (50th percentile) Don't forget about the age old question of What is the function and location of chromatin?
If you want to learn more check out What are some examples of acidic and neutral substances?

2. Forgoiten foods-soda, snacks 3. Occasion when they cite it u Detail cycle- was there dip? or milk wi amean? 5. Final probe- fact check issues

Anthropometry!!!! subject lies

- compare subject to reference subject forgets

ex. 20 yr old of same Subiect moditres diet + background Expensive

tors if gap is big b/w subject Time-consuming indice mitior reference = under nourished We also discuss several other topics like What is the process for computing for the second law of thermodynamics?

nderna + use weight, height, + We also discuss several other topics like Which aspects are monitored as part of healthcare?

A why children? We study them blc they are and most likely

to die after old people (which

makes sense) decith " 7 of median weight from malnutrition is
