Results of the log-log regression of fat mass (FM), and lean mass (LM), against height (Ht). The gradient (Y) is used as the power to raise Ht (HtY) to test the correlation of FM or LM (both denoted as X) against Ht. Variation % is the percentage variation of X attributable to height in a significant correlation between X/Ht2 v Ht
