two posts about children’s height on Ideas for India blog

Written by Diane Coffey on March 2nd, 2013

Check out two recent posts on the Ideas for India blog! Dean proposes that the “height gap” between Indian and African children may be due to a “toilet gap,” that is relatively poor sanitation coverage in India, and Diane writes about the effect of mother’s status on children’s height. The former post can be found here, and the latter, here.
