No two human beings are built exactly alike, but we can group individuals into three major categories. These groups represent basic body shapes.
MORPH = body, body form
ECTO = all energy is outgoing
ENDO = all energy is stored inside
MESO = between, in the middle
ECTOMORPH = slim individual
ENDOMORPH = broad individual
MESOMORPH = body type between the two others, "muscular" type
Ectomorphs, slim persons, are more susceptible to lung infections. Endomorphs are more susceptible to heart disease.
