    The major influence on height increase is nutrition and clean water. In countries where calorie intake has not changed and they still have water quality issues, height is unchanged in 150yrs.

    Yes. I am not saying you are wrong. I mean, if a kid is genetically destined to be 5'10" if you feed him poorly he'd be 5'8" and if you feed him very well he'd be closer to 6', he is not getting 6'5" because of better food.

    Well, if you look into the article I linked and other studies teh undeniable fact is that nutrition was just terrible in the past. Women in Korea and Japan -- with relatively unchanged genetics for the past 150 years -- have an average growth in height of 20cm.

    I'm not suggesting that feeding your kid a lot more calories will make him 6'5", but looking at the height of the grand parents is absurd because of their poor nutrition during the growth years.

    It is not absurd, you can look at body types and get a measure. If your wife's dad is short and stocky your son will not be tall and lanky.
    Yes, he will most likely be taller than his granddad because of vitamins and food, but he will inherit the body type.

    You're right! A doctor told me once someone who had grown up with available fresh fruit and vegetables is most likely to be taller than someone in the city with a terrible fast food diet their whole childhood.
    Your parents heights determine your height through genetics sure.....but height could go either way a few inches depending on your diet.

    To go along with the Kimbo Rice photo I posted earlier in here, here's a photo of me in a Chinese takeout box costume.

    Ahhh I see. I grew up a little outside of Knoxville and met my wife through a mutual friend when I was in the Marine Corps. Ended up here. I’m in the NW burbs.

    Fortunately there hasn't been an unsafe situation around my crew of guys for a few years. We've been very lucky.

    Nah. Its really not as bad as the news makes it out to be. I doubt fear was the motivation to go to the west coast.

    Stay away from most of the west side and parts of the south side and you’re fine. Downtown and the north side are nice and it’s honestly a pretty city and I’m not even from here originally. The parks and navy pier are all cool places to visit, lots of good restaurants as well.

    There are other cities that violent crime rate/population are worse than Chicago.

    This isn’t true at all.

    Your wife’s dad doesn’t determine your child’s height. What if your wife’s mom, your mom, and your dad were all tall?

    Furthermore, I know plenty of guys with a short mom or dad who are well over six feet. Even within siblings the difference can be huge.

    yeah, because for boys most traits are passed on in third generation on the male line. dont remember exactly how this works with girls, but it is similar but with female line.
    if all other family members are tall then of course the kid will end up taller than his granddad, but with his general traits.
    It is exactly my case - I look very much like my granddad but am taller and bigger than he was, with darker hair, because all relatives from my dad's side are taller and with darker pigmentation.
