      The average height in the US for a female in my age range is 5 feet, 4.5 inches. However, these days I've noticed more than a few are somewhat taller than that. Some of them I've seen are about as tall as an average male (5' 10") if not taller. No heels, either.

      Guess they've been drinking plenty of milk.

      Secondary question: Anyone mind dating someone as tall as (or taller than) them?

      I'm okay with it, although not intentionally. I notice the long legs. Eventually I notice that they're tall(er) too.

      both sexes are getting taller (at least according to statistics from US and Europe)

      I blame these

      I've always thought that too. I mean I'm 18 and although you always see numbers like 5'4" as the average I know way more girls that are 5'6" to 5'9", with a few obviously even taller than that. It seems like a lot of women my parents age are very short and girls my age are comparatively much taller, generally speaking.

      The height thing doesn't really matter to me as long as they don't completely tower over me.

      It depends on the level of affluence and the dominant race where you live. You're on Connecticut which is the wealthiest state in the country. Children eat a high protein diet and get enough vitamins. Chances are, you live in a town that has a fairly high concentration of people genetically prone to be taller.

      The average height of women in the US is 5'4".

      I'm 6'3". I think 6' women are hot. I guess if you're 5'6", it's a problem.

      I am only 6' and have yet to meet a taller female.

      And what I have noticed is most females are 5'4 -5'6 at the younger age ranges and there tits are almost tall as they are

      At my school, at least, there are a ton of tall girls (5' 8" +) and there are even more short guys (5' 7" or smaller). It's funny and it helps being 6' 2". I don't know how it happens but each incoming class keeps getting shorter and shorter, they're like hobbits.

      I like taller girls because I like long, proportional legs. My ideal girl would be my height, 6'0", with heels on. I found one like that who is very pretty, but once she opens her mouth you want to blow your brains out. I still can't help imagine what it would be like going out with her and doing stuff with, although right now she is going out with somebody.

      When I was in HS I also noticed each class was getting shorter and smaller. It wasn't because I was growing much either at that point, too. They were just smaller overall than when my class and the class above me were there.

      Are boobs really getting bigger or are Wonder Bras and other types of supplements getting better?

      Oh, and for those thinking girls are getting taller... let's not forget about:

      Seriously, x2. What's worse is lately I've been seeing more and more girls popping up with the Snooki hairstyle. It doesn't look good on Snooki, and it doesn't look good on you...

      i'm only 5'8. my mom who is Japanese is 4'11 so i actually got kinda lucky, considering my dad is only 5'8 as well.

      I don't mind dating someone who is taller than I am. The tallest girl i dated was 5'10 so not that big of a difference, but it was fine.

      everyone is getting taller.

      i'm over 6'2" tall & don't consider myself tall at all - however, i do realize that it's rare that i bump into someone significantly taller than myself and then i think "holy crap, that guy's tall!" so i guess to others i may be tall.

      my short, imo, friend at 5'7" short says he's average height. i lol'd as i'd pin the average height of male grade 12 students these days at about 6' tall. then finally he goes on to say that 5'7" is the average height of men WORLD WIDE. i lol'd.. you can't include 1 billion chinese ppl & other short races when most ppl HERE are plenty taller than that. he thinks he can, though.

      dunno if i'd mind dating a chick taller than me - never happened. i dated a chick for a couple weeks that was shorter than me, but that was 11 years ago.

      Hormones are very essential for the proper functioning of the various body organs of the humans, as well as other animals. Imbalance of a single hormone can create a lot of problems. Hormones are certain kind of chemicals that are naturally present in the human body. They are actually produced in a very small amount in the various hormone producing organs, but their role is very significant in various body functions, including reproduction as well as development and growth of various body parts.

      Hormones are basically of two types - steroids and proteins. Protein hormones are normally in a cramped stage in the stomach. These hormones lose their function when we eat anything, while steroid hormones get active only when we eat anything. Due to this contradiction, protein hormones must get induced in the body in order for them to perform properly. There are several illnesses that are caused by the lack of several important hormones. For instance, patients suffering from diabetes need to be given insulin, which is a protein hormone.

      Hormones in Food: Natural
      There are several natural hormones in food products that are very useful. Some notable plants contain certain hormone like substances that are called as phytoestrogens (dietary hormones), that can cause several dysfunctions, it also has remedial properties. It is said that the phytoestrogens can protect against breast cancer. There are several researches though that point out the downfalls of the phytoestrogens. When female rats were fed with isoflavonoid coumestrol, they showed various physical dysfunctions such as irregular menstruation in female rats and male rats showed abnormal mating behavior. The rat offspring also obtained the induced hormones. This research was carried forward by Patricia L. Whitten who is a biological anthropologist from Atalanta. While another research showed extra uterine growth and also increase in weight. Infertility syndrome called as clover disease were observed in the cattle who were fed on the ear containing these hormones for research purposes.

      Hormones in Food: Artificial
      It has been observed that there are several hormones (growth hormones) that help animals gain weight in no time. Inducing such hormones in the animals artificially, can reduce the amount of food as well as the time required for gaining weight. All this results into quick production of the animals for the meat industry. The same technique is applied in the dairy production as it also increases the milk production of cows and other dairy animals.

      Artificially induced hormones in animals can increase the dairy as well as meat production. During the 1930s various hormones like bovine growth hormone (bGH) estrogen were artificially induced in the pituitary glands of the cows that resulted in the large production of milk. Then in 1950, a synthetic form of estrogen called diethylstilbestrol (DES) was induced to fatten the chicken and cattle. DES was ruled out as it had cancer causing properties. Today, more than 80% of the cattle are raised by using such artificial hormones that help to increase their growth rate as well as the body mass. The US department of agriculture has given permission to use six hormones that can be used for cattle but not in the poultry. These hormones are:

      * Zeranol
      * Estradiol
      * Testosterone
      * Progesterone
      * Melengestrol acetate
      * Trenbolone acetate

      Among these six hormones, testosterone, estradiol and progesterone are natural hormones and melengestrol acetate, trenbolone acetate and zeronol are synthetic hormones. Zeranol and estradiol can cause some serious health problems. These hormones in food products can lead to severe health problems including ovarian cyst and cancer.

      Hormones in Food: Cause of Concern
      Hormones are generally introduced into animals by an ear implant (they are put under the ear skin). According to the European Union's Scientific Committee on SCVPH (Veterinary Measures Relating to Public Health), when natural hormones are fed to the cattle, the level of their hormones increases from 7 to 20 times more. It also questioned about the possible side effects on the human body after consuming the hormones in meat as well as dairy products. After thorough research, the SCVPH came to the conclusion that "no acceptable daily intake could be established for any of these hormones" and those who eat food products having these hormonal residues are at a great risk of severe hormonal imbalance as well as various types of cancer.

      Growth hormones induced in cattle are totally banned by the EU from the last 20 years. On the other hand, around 1/3 of the total cattle in the US are supposedly being fed on rbGH. This specifically designed hormones is injected in the cows to increase the milk production. These hormones have their side effects like mastitis (udder infection causing pus that can later get into the milk that we consume). Hence, they are given certain special antibiotics that cause more trouble. The hormonal residues as well as the residues of the antibiotics get into the human body and create havoc by creating antibiotic resistant bacteria. These hormones have their negative effects on the environment as well, because the undigested hormones are secreted in the manure that later dissolves in the soil.

      Hormones in Food: Course of Action
      We cannot simply stop consuming things that might contain artificial hormones. Instead, we can check whether the farm animals are raised with the hormones in their food. Hormones in milk products can be avoided by purchasing milk from some local farmer that can make it easy to keep an eye on the usage of hormones in food products. The dairy products from Australia, Japan, EU and Canada will be hormone free so you can consume those food items.

      Being more aware of the hormones in food is the most important thing. The farmers who are using artificial hormones for pure commercial benefits, should give a thought if it is worth playing with the lives of millions of people for a small amount of money.

      Depends where you live. Here in Hawaii most girls are Asian. At 6 foot 2 I am a giant in most scenarios, and my GF is considered very tall at 5 foot 7. However when we traveled to Sweden I met women who made me feel like a midget.

      I don't know how I feel about dating tall chicks, but I know they are very conscious about dating short dudes. My friend from high school dated an endless string of loser dudes because they were taller then her(5'11). She wouldn't even consider dating a shorter guy.

      Give it a shot if you are tall and meet a taller then average girl. Might be able to bag a 10 for 5.

      Hmm. I'm 5'10" and my wife is 6'.
      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      I like the idea of tall girls, but for some reason I end up with TINY ones. I've literally never dated a girl over 5'4" and most have been 5'0"-5'2". I'm 6'1".
