Your size and shape could have an impact on your status and bank balance, according to a new study by the U.K.'s University of Exeter.
Using genetic data scientists have found that taller men and slimmer women earn more than those who are shorter and overweight. The study was aimed at finding out whether the way you look could influence your chances in life.
"We found that in men, you are worse off if you are a bit shorter, as measured by genetics. And in women we found that you are a bit worse off if you are fatter, as measured by genetics," Tim Frayling, a professor of human genetics at the university, said in a statement accompanying the paper.
