A human's height is determined by a number of factors. Genetics isfirst and most important. If your parents are short, you areunlikely to ever bump your head walking through a… doorway. A tallgrandparent might give you some hope. Your genes determine themaximum height you can potentially be. Other factors can prevent you from reaching that potential. Growingto be as tall as you can is mostly a matter of avoiding things thatwill prevent proper development. This means that you need to eat a proper balanced diet thatincludes calcium-rich foods as well as protein to provide materialfor both bones and muscles. There really is no one miracle foodthat you need to reach your full potential height, it's a matter ofbalanced nutrition. Reasonable amounts of exercise should alsohelp, but care needs to be taken to avoid high-impact activitiesthat can injure bones and joints in the critical growth period.Swimming and running are good. Extreme weightlifting less so. Growth is controlled by hormones. Hormones are chemicals producedby various glands in the body. Their production can be affected byother chemicals, and so it would only make sense that the lessforeign chemicals make it into your system the better your chancesto be taller would be. As trite as that sounds, don't smoke, kids.Avoiding drugs and industrial chemicals is also a good idea. The above largely applies to teenagers. Humans generally stopgrowing by their early 20's. Any significant height changes afterthat are highly unlikely. A lot of people are very insecure about their height. There aremany companies out there trying to take advantage of that byselling "miracle pills", exercise systems, diets, and sillygadgets. Shoe lifts were all the rage about 40 years ago. Gadgetsare junk. Exercise systems can cause injury. Diets can affect yourbody, but not in the vertical dimension. None of this stuff willmake you taller, no matter what the sellers claim. There are no magic pills or potions that can increase your heightonce you have finished growing. Your height is predetermined inyour genetic make up. Pills can be especially dangerous. At best, these things will donothing. At worst, you risk unbalancing your endocrine system, andthat can get really nasty. Human hormonal balance is a delicatething, easy to upset and tough to fix. Hormone imbalances can causemen to grow breasts and women to grow mustaches. Use of growthhormones has been linked to cancer. Personally, I would take shortand alive over tall and dead from cancer any day. If you are a teenager and have a concern about your growth, see anendocrinologist. They can run tests and see if your glands areworking properly. If there is a problem, it is best to catch itearly to have the best chance of fixing it. The tests involvechecking hormone levels. The answers can only come from a lab andnot from a website. If you are an adult, you are pretty much stuck being the height youare. There is an extremely difficult and painful surgical method ofadding length to your limbs that involves breaking bones andgradually stretching them with special devices so that new bonegrows to close the gap. It's called the Ilizarov technique, andit's about the only thing proven to work. As any surgery, it isrisky, and no reputable doctor will do it unless you have a genuinecase of dwarfism. One thing you can do is dress well. Monochrome colors to maintain asolid, uninterrupted look. No short sleeves or shorts. Your best bet is to change your outlook. Short people have it great- they can drive smaller cars and pay less for gas. They use lessfabric for clothes. Besides, height is not what makes a person.Napoleon, being slightly less tall than the average Frenchman ofhis time, managed to conquer most of Europe. Nutrition: Foods rich in calcium (for bone growth, repair and strengthening), proteins (required for growth hormone production), zinc and vitamins Exercises: Mostly stretching exercises like the Cat stretch, wall stretch, sit up stretch, hanging, swimming and the yawn. Sleep: having enough sleep. Uninterrupted sleep at least 8 hours of sleep a day. I want to be over 6'8-6'11 I guess you have to eat the amount of food what the food pyramid says and exercise. That's what i heard as advice. No one can really make themselves grow taller because your height depends on your genes. But if you eat a balenced diet, your body will grow more compared to someone who doesn't eat as well.
No. This statement and relationship is a myth and fallacy. There is no known or suspected correlation between the removal of body hair and human growth rates.
If most of the people on both sides of your family are short, odds are that you'll be short, too. Drugs and alcohol are both thought to contribute to stunted growth if the…y're ingested while you're young, and malnutrition can keep you from reaching your full height, so stay way from them and you are good to go.
yes it does
You can't grow taller than what your DNA determines.
well im 11 and i eat a lot of veg and im 5 feet tall so yes i gess
No, but honey does have many other health benefits.
if they pile up more and more
Men can grow until they're in their early 20's.
Usually when you grow and keep the same weight, yes you will be skinnier, but if bad eating habits continue over to a new height you will just be taller, but not skinnier.
Nutrition and genetics are the only major players in how tall a person grows. In some cases of dwarfism, such as proportionate dwarfs, human growth hormone may be a treatment …beginning in childhood to attempt a taller stature. However, for someone without such disorder who has already reached adult height, or is genetically "normal short", the use of hgh will not result in a taller stature. In this case hgh would more likely mirror the bulking effects of steroids.
You pay some one 60 dollars. And they will hit you with a magic wand and you shall GROW!
You can't stop your kids from growing its something that's in they're genetics and therefore can't be stopped. And why would you want to? I mean everyone has to deal with they…'re height.
To simplify your question, I think you meant "How can you not grow taller?" And yes I got the answer, to not grow taller, you're need to put a bit of weight, not much exer…cising going on and lastly having less sleeping like 6 hours of course. So ya but growing taller has many benefits to you, just sayin
