We were five members in my family -father, mother ,elder brother , younger brother and myself . I was the shortest . After our marriage shorter members came in and I got rid of the grief of being the shotest .What is your position in your family in terms of height?

Of my two brothers I am the tallest. My Pop was 6'2", Mom is 5'6", I'm just over 6'. So I figure if I live into say my 70's, all my joints will have started to deteriorate. I figure I'll be about 5'10" when my number is up.

Over 6'! How old are you ? You told your father WAS ...Is he no more ? One thing , if you think being too tall may cause joint pain you should make habit of certain excercises.

I'm 37, my father passed away years ago. When my grandfather passed in his 70's he said he was two inches shorter than when he was younger.

That is actually due to the deterioration of disks in the neck and back. Just make sure you drink you milk and have good posture.

If you are younger than 24 years there is still scope for increasing your height.

If you are still under 24 , there is still scope for increasing your height with appropriate excercise .

Yes . You are right . Charlie Chaplin , Sachin Tendulkar , Napoleon are some of the personalities who happened to be short and world still remember them for their deeds.

I am also the shortest . I felt unhappy when I was in the college . But now everything is O.K. But I still feel that height is an added advantage when the question of socialisation comes.What is your opinion?

Have your food regularly and do some physical excercises. Calcium is necessary for growth of the bone , I think. For it milk is good source.
