A study of Correlations between growth and development of physical active children (5-8 years) with different race (Hindu, Muslim and Behari) of Haldia at Purba Midnapur in West Bengal

Abstract: Longitudinal growth of an individual child is a dynamic statement of the general health of that child. Measurements should be performed often and accurately to detect alterations from physiologic growth. Somatic growth and maturation are influenced by several factors that act independently or in concert to modify an individual’s genetic growth potential. Linear growth within the first 2 y of life generally decelerates but then remains relatively constant throughout childhood until the onset of the pubertal growth spurt. Because of the wide variation among individuals in the timing of the pubertal growth spurt, there is a wide range of physiologic variations in normal growth. Nutritional status and heavy exercise training are only 2 of the major influences on the linear growth of children. In the United States, nutritional deficits result from self-induced restriction of energy intake. That single factor, added to the marked energy expenditure of training and competition for some sports, and in concert with the self-selection of certain body types, makes it difficult to identify the individual factors responsible for the slow linear growth of some adolescent athletes, for example, those who partake in gymnastics, dance, or wrestling.rnThus, there is concern about the potential effects of training on the timing and progression (tempo) of puberty “caused” by participation in training and sports. Critical analysis with the biological indicators of bone age or peak height velocity in longitudinal study designs is required to tease out the effects of such training on pubertal development and adult height. Somatic growth and maturation are influenced by several factors that act independently or in concert to modify an individual’s genetic potential. For example, at birth, an infant’s size is more dependent on maternal nutrition and intrauterine and placental factors than on genetic makeup. The present study was therefore designed to characterize the growth and devlopment status and determine the race factor and physical activity that might be responsible for the physical development of children (5-8 years) in different race (Hindu, Muslim and Behari) of Haldia at Purba Midnapur in West Bengal. rnFor this study height, weight, MUAC, circumference skinfold measurement taken in physical active with different race, muslim Bengali and Bihari group of children.rnIn the present data it was noted that the weight, circumference, skinfold is significant changed in Muslim children compare to Bengali and Bihari group of childreen.
