#176: “Heightism,” The Economic & Mating Benefits of Height, How To Figure Out Your Kid’s Future Height

by Gregory

Heightism! It’s good to be tall! In this episode of Holistic Health News, we discuss the numerous benefits of being tall. “Heightism” in particular.

1. We look how one of the key factors for people reaching 90 years of age (in particular with women) is to be as tall as possible. (With men it’s another factor.).

2. We discuss a new study showing how taller people are seen as more competent, get paid better, and breed with more attractive people (duh!).

3. We discuss the “height formula” where you can estimate how tall your young children will be based on the height of his/her parent. Gregory uses his own children to illustrate.
