they got food for growth
Just wondering whats the averege hight for a grown man?
They are being given HGH, Human Growth Hormones by their parents today as well as in some of their foods they eat.
It's all the hormones in the foods we eat. You didn't see many giants years ago or women with size 9+ feet.
It has to do with genetics. When your bones grow, then the information of how much they grew is stored in your DNA. When a bay is born, a small percentage of the of the parents' DNA is transferred into the baby. Included is a small percentage of the bone growth information from your parents. If its a boy, its likely going to be of a similar height to the father, in addition to the total growth of the child. A similar thing happens to girls.
This is how we've grown by miniscule amounts over thousands of years. Eventually, 9 feet will be the average height. And think of the small percentage of parents' DNA of being like a "minimum height requierment" for bones. It tells your body about how tall it needs to be. Theres math involved, but I'm not going into details.
I have never seen a woman with size 9 feet. I have heard of one though. She was called Clementine.
Light she was and like a fairy
And her shoes were number nine,
Herring boxes without topses,
Sandals were for Clemintine.
All together now...Oh, my darlin..........
