America No Longer Tallest Country in the World
NEW YORK ‚ÄĒ America used to be the tallest country in the world. From the days of the founding fathers right on through the industrial revolution and two world wars, Americans literally towered over other nations. In a land of boundless open spaces and limitless natural abundance, the young nation transformed its increasing wealth into human growth.

But just as it has in so many other arenas, America's predominance in height has faded. Americans reached a height plateau after World War II, gradually falling behind the rest of the world as it continued growing taller.

By the time the baby boomers reached adulthood in the 1960s, most northern and western European countries had caught up with and surpassed the United States. Young adults in Japan and other prosperous Asian countries now stand nearly as tall as Americans do. ...

What concerns me the most about this article is not the subject, but the fact that some anti-american nut-wad felt it necessary to gloat over it and bring it to our attention. We all know that America has its weaknesses, but just wait...the tall people will eventually emmigrate here to avoid being converted to militant Islam.

Actually, that balanced diet does include "Chez Mac." Keep in mind that one of the big things that made us taller was the inclusion of protein in our diet.

(and apart from the pop and fries, McDonald's isn't that bad for you, in moderation....)

Now certainly we might do well to stop subsidizing maize, pushing our people to eat grains, fatty foods, meats, and dairy in lieu of vegetables and fruits. However, let's not forget for a second that we should be rejoicing that Europe and Asia are finally getting enough to eat.

Robert Perry,

Would that balanced diet be McDonalds?

How does America 'stack up' in the WIDTH department? I think as a nation we may have sacrificed leadership in height for leadership in girth.

Read this news item carefully. It is no more than a thinly disguised promotion of socialism.

How wonderful that other nations in the world are finally getting the benefits of a balanced diet that Americans have taken for granted for generations!
