Submission + - Europeans taller than Americans

theolein writes: "The BBC has an article up on a recent study that concludes that Europeans are now on average taller than Americans from being shorter some 200 years ago. It seems that Americans have grown about 1 inch in that time, whereas Europeans are between 3 and 6 inches taller than they were 200 years ago. The study does not include Asian or Hispanic immigrants to the USA and makes no conclusions about why this is, but states that factors, such as dietry, social and economic factors may play a role in the results."
