Different proteins, different results
« on: September 18, 2017, 12:02:23 pm »
I read somewhere that a few centuries ago japanese obtained their protein from mostly fish. Upon the introduction of beef, they became a foot or so taller on average. Does anyone have an explanation as to why beef should cause a height increase over fish? More generally, besides in flavor, do different meats have significantly different health/growth properties?

Highly dubious. Other nations eating lots of seafood can be quite tall, such as Icelanders etc. The notion behind the low height of East Asians is that animal fat/protein was, until modern times, much less. Plus, east asians in the US apparently eat far more animal food than in home countries, so are taller than their home country citizens.

rickets and deformed bones/legs are much less prevalent now, caused mostly by lack of vitamin D, and too many anti-nutrients.

Who says it's not the rice and soy that keeps them short?

many think it's the increased milk consumption and it's hormones

Ridiculous, Scandinavians drink the most milk and are strongest and tallest in the world. Milk contains HGH too you know, that's why it's given to babies etc to make them grow. Not to mention the calcium which most people don't get enough of.
