Before the bison were slaughtered, the native people living in the northern plains were among world tallest in the world. After, in just one generation, the height of Native American people who depended on bison dropped by over an inch.

I remember seeing this pic of seeing natives from the plains in their traditional garb at 6’2 standing next to South American natives at 5’4(at most) it was striking. it was fascinating how drastically different these 2 people ended up becoming

so the key to no longer being a manlet is to eat lots and lots of juicy bison every day

Brutal
reminded me of another grim factoid from pdfrel that stuck with me
>A legacy of those colonial days which continues is the custom of eating dirt. Lack of iron produces anemia, and instinct leads Northeastern children to eat dirt to gain the mineral salts which are absent from their diet of manioc starch, beans, and-with luck-dried meat. In former times this "African vice" was punished by putting muzzles on the children or by hanging them in willow baskets far above the ground.

yes for generations and generations, so you might not grow to be that tall but your descendants might

It's not the bison, free people stand tall and proud:
> Enforced conformity of human beings — the subjugation of society to the will of the State — leads to generalized stress upon the total organism of each. Modern psychosomatic medicine makes abundantly clear that all life (protoplasm) consists of electro-colloidal equilibrium between gel (total dispersion) and sol (total contraction), and every stress produces contraction, as is seen in exaggerated form in the typical withdrawal of the snail and turtle, a human infant visibly cringing with fear, etc. It is this (usually microscopic) contraction of the physical body that we experience psychically as “anxiety.” When it becomes chronic, this contraction effects the large muscles and creates that “hunched, bowed” look which actors employ when portraying a timid and beaten man. The tendency toward this “posture of defeat” is visible in all State-dominated societies, as it was conspicuously absent in the bold carriage of the State-less Polynesians and American Indians when first contacted.

okay then why did southern plain Indians, who lived right below some of the tallest humans in the world, were comparatively a lot shorter
the Seminole and apaches were all noted for their shorter height compared to northern natives

being a 7+ foot tall person seems dependent on genetic factors, but most people regardless of genetics seem to be able to hit 6+ if they have the right diet and activity in their developmental phase.
Diet high in proteins with lots of physical activity, sports, less junk food = tall kid
Epic gamer kid chugging mountain dew and eating potato chips and not much else = manlet.
many such cases!

of course we see this historically with early agriculturalists like the ancient egyptians being turbomanlets, while steppe hunter-gatherers whom also ate lots of meat like Proto-IEs got fuckign tall, just like the north plains fellas.
In short, if any of us manage to procreate (tall order), force your kid to play sports and eat meat and don't let them game too hard and don't let them eat fucking garbage.
Also they shouldn't smoke that probably stunts growth

Its still mostly genetic though(especially in the modern world), look at polyanions, they don't exercise that much, have horrible diets and yet their still some of the tallest human beings on the planet
my dad's family is northern punjabi where men average around 5'10+, my mom's family is sindhi where men are mostly 5'5 ish, both sides that live in cities and have similar lifestyles and diets have this height difference as well

It is better. I've had bison a couple times and it's noticeably heartier than beef, even the nice grass fed beef.

Reminder that colonists just killed as many bison as they could. They didn't even take the meat or anything. It was just considered fun to shoot them, and passengers on trains would take pot shots at herds for a laugh. They were considered a pest animal by railroad companies since they could get in the way of trains, so they did everything they could to incentivize killing them off.

They're just tools. It's the manner in which they are used that matters in the respect you mean. Nazis also used trains to transport things.
