How is it that Netherlands have such tall people. And is it true that they where among the most short people in europe just a hunderd years ago? That's what the documentary I saw said. Is it good nutrition after all?

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

I'll admit that when I saw the thread title, I had a completely different idea in my head as to what this would be about...

I would say nutrition. I mean, look at Serbia and Montenegro. Average height is like 6'3" in Montenegro where the diet is basically dairy product based.

no its keeping in the gene pool...they all marry each other so they all stay tall

its all in the genes

North european people are genetically quite tall (when the romans passed the alps, the barbarians were all huge!)

Standards of living for most people in northern europe were generally very low until the mid 20th century.

EDIT: To answer your Q., it's general healthcare - diet, access to clean water, living standards.

I heard something like that too!
But yeah nutrition has a lot to do with it. Like you meet a lot of immigrants whose children are much taller than them and all their relatives overseas because their children eat western food.

Here, you witness Darwin making its selection.

Uneducated swine.

If anyone has kids, take care of them. Make them eat healthy, be a good parent. And thou shall outgrow thee
