    Americans are now the shortest population in the industrialized world...a growing problem as we have problems growing

    June 19, 2007 - New research shows that Americans are coming up short.

    In fact, we are the shortest population in the industrialized world.
    Since the colonial times, Americans were the tallest people in the world.

    The Netherlands is now the world's tallest country.

    In Denmark., men average 6 feet, while American men average 5'10.

    Researchers say the Dutch health care system might take better care of children when they are young.

    That's when most growing takes place.

    Another reason might be poor diet in the US.

    Overeating can cause children to produce too much growth hormone too early and stop growing at a younger age.

    Sounds about right!
    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    Tell that to big Al and tp.
    To be born an Englishman, is to be a winner in the Lottery of Life.

    I would think the Japanese would have us beat.
