what's rick steves about? a show? sounds intriguing.

elevation encouraging people to be taller, perhaps by reaching higher? maybe there is a physics theory on that.....or how about how being in low elevation makes you reach higher and walk straighter for better lung support to get more air? being straighter and attempting to be less compressed helps create space between your spinal bones, which gives the discs and soft tissues more room to stretch and have more movement. more length and more movement means less rotation and less compression, two problems that can make someone absolutely shorter. rotation can cause scoliosis which definitely knocks peoples height off kilter and compression can cause bone deformity where the bones fuse together and kill the disc.

i can see how something like this could work...

Kanita- May I ask how old are you? and what's your parents height?
Mr-Dale- Wow.. You are very tall. As a Dutch, please tell us what are you eating? or something.. I mean, I am 167-169(not sure)and I'm so want to be taller!

blah. I am so desperate for being taller that it is sad. I'm drinking Soy milk and I am not eating meat at all- Do you think I should?(eat meat and drink cow milk?)

^ You remind me of a popular saying where I grew up (Dutch immigrant community) ... "If you're not Dutch, you're not much."

Of course, I always took this with a grain of salt

There's a need for more individuality today, and my job is to cater to women, not dictate to them.
