    was it ever properly published and accepted, or just a scare story?

    anyway, my kid doesn't eat much meat, but lots of veggies and fruits

    English people where also short,because of diet,even in the 2nd WW they where small,and after the war they stayed stunted. Then Mc Donalds and KFC arrived and the boys grew taller and the girls needed bigger bra sizes. All down to diet.

    Growth hormones used in the chicken, hog and beef industries. Bigger, faster. also reputed to be a cause of cancers...carcinogens in the injections and food supply train.

    No escape Andy if you're a meat eater of any sort. Mercury levels in fish are rising every year. Check the Japanese reports on that one.

    not me, we are talking about our kids

    It all depends on what you eat and how much

    if you eat poorly produced chicken twice a day, then I could believe that the hormones could affect you

    It may be down to diet but there is no connection with fast foods

    people grow taller because they get a good start in life (incl. when they are in the womb) and continue to receive enough essentials in their diet
    I have reported your post

    When the Chinese got KFC they sprouted like weeds...perhaps the very first real protein they ever had? Thailand's full of protein fat people these days. So much so its become noteworthy that many have out grown their motorbikes.

    You are what you eat.

    Many poorly produced meats etc are now being served as free range organic etc.never believe what there telling you there are many instances of what there supposed to be doing, but don't

    Only way now to live healthy is to produce your own foods.

    that is one way, as long as you don't use any chemicals to kill weeds and bugs, fungi or whatever, because many people who do use them, misuse them

    I think you can live healthily by buying your produce carefully; there is, however, only so much you can do; the rest you just have to hope you are not getting poisoned

    Interesting to see how tall my kids are going to be
