    Why Do Women Prefer Tall Men?

    If being tall equals better chances of getting a mate, why don’t our bodies grow? We have an abundance of calories we can give our bodies, yet they won’t make themselves grow. Why can’t our mind influence our looks? I want to grow taller I want to grow taller I want to grow taller.. Repeating...

    How have we not solved the topic of growing in height ? I find it hard to believe it is just "genetics"

    I have shared this with the forum previously - but I knew a pair of identical twins in my life - one grew up in Florida whom I went to school with and the other grew up in the NorthEast - I think it was New York- the twin in Florida grew to be 6"4 and the one in the NorthEast grew to be 5"7 - I...

    Were males destined to die young ? Examining life expectancies in humans and mammals - males vs females

    I think by now most of us have heard about the idea that women live longer than men - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5603374/ "Among humans, women's life span is almost 8% on average longer than men's life span." "In every human population, women live longer than men, so much so...

    Deep Sea Gigantism - Could Carbon Dioxide/metabolism play a role in deep-sea animals gigantic size

    Deep-Sea Gigantism https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep-sea_gigantism " In zoology, deep-sea gigantism is the tendency for species of invertebrates and other deep-sea dwelling animals to be larger than their shallower-water relatives across a large taxonomic range. Proposed explanations for this...

    GWAS Predicting Height Were Wrong; Same May Be True For Disease-prediction

    You have to appreciate the synchronicity (Synchronicity - Wikipedia) in nature. Just days after I posted the study on the role of diet in height, another study calls into question the validity of genetic factors in height...

    Height Is Dependent On Diet Quality, Not Genes

    I posted a few threads in the past demonstrating that gene are likely not the main driver of height, despite the mainstream dogma vehement claiming to the contrary. Dutch People Gained 20cm Of Height In Just 150 Years Protein Quality, Not Genes, Determine Male Height Intelligence and height...

    Environmental Quality, Not Genetics, Determines Testosterone Levels In Men

    The genetic theory of testosterone (T) levels is one of the cornerstones of all authoritarian regimes. Genetically superior males, it goes, are destined to rise to the top and dominate their more submissive brethren, with the Hulks hoarding up all the women and natural resources along their way...

    Lower Growth Hormone (hGH) And IGF-1 Levels In Men Extends Lifespan

    The study is important because it was done on humans and confirms a lot of what Ray has written about the dangers of pituitary hormones, including hGH. Combined with the well-known link between hGH and cancer I am not sure how sane the doctor advising all the athletes juicing with hGH are. The...

    Protein Quality, Not Genes, Determine Male Height

    I posted a study on the height of Dutch men - a well studied phenomenon officially explained by genes, but recently recast as one possibly due to diet. Dutch People Gained 20cm Of Height In Just 150 Years Now this new study adds more evidence to the diet hypothesis as it found a population in...

    Taller People Have Higher Mortality From Cancer

    I am sure this will ignite a firestorm again, but that is not my intention. Last week, I posted this study that claimed overweight people have lower mortality. People With The Lowest Overall Mortality Are Overweight That relationship has been claimed to be explainable by a proportion of skinny...

    Dutch People Gained 20cm Of Height In Just 150 Years

    Maybe another confirmation of Peat ideas and epigenetics over genetics. Dutch people used to be among the shortest as recently as 150 years ago. Now, they are the tallest (on average). While the study makes the standard claim that a combination of genetics and environment probably caused this...

    Another Study Links Shorter People To Longer Lifespan

    I posted about a similar study before but it was just a correlation analysis. This study seems to go a step "further" and claim that this is related to genetic makeup and the (in)famous FOXO3 gene. I think Peat wrote that the lifespan benefits are likely due to the higher (on average) brain/body...

    Height in humans is positively correlated with cancer

    Yet another piece of evidence for Peat's ideas. I remember reading in one of his books/articles that large dogs don't live long and die primarily of cancer, while small dogs live longest (and die iatrogenically) due to their larger brain/body mass ratio, which determines how fast metabolism is...
