I wonder if public apathy in the name of capitalist order and political party allegiance towards significant wealth distribution disparities have anything to do with this​:thinking::thinking::thinking:

The tall young girls back when I landed on the island were athletes in college, usually swimming, track & field, volleyball. Many over 170cm, moreso than average.
I think parents in the year 2000s started really actively giving good fresh milk to their kids or western (Swiss or NZ) milk powder, which could have helped out in the higher averages currently.
