    I always had the same understanding. Although I can't quite remember where I heard that. I will look for it and then edit this post with my findings.

    We drink milk, lots of it. So maybe there is a relation with that.

    It would be interesting to do a statistical analysis of the relationship between stature and lactose intolerance. Like I said in another thread, the Dutch are not only the tallest people in the world, they also have the world's lowest percentage of lactose intolerance.

    I'm sure, however, that there are nations with high percentages of lactose intolerance, yet with a high stature on average. (I'm thinking of certain African nations.) Obviously other variables are at work, but I think it would be valuable to learn about the aforementioned correlations.

    Dutch Men and Latvian Women Tallest in World, New Study Shows

    EuroScience Open Forum - ScienceDaily

    Dutch men and Latvian women are the tallest on the planet, according to the largest ever study of height around the world. The research, led by scientists from Imperial College London and using data from most countries in the world, tracked height among young adult men and women between 1914 and 2014. Among the findings, published in the journal eLife, the research revealed South Korean women and Iranian men have shown the biggest increases in height over the past 100 years ... The research also revealed once-tall USA had declined from third tallest men and fourth tallest women in the world in 1914 to 37th and 42nd place respectively in 2014.
