Americans are getting taller. When George
Washington was President, the average height of
American males was 168-172 cm, about 5 feet, 6
inches tall. President Washington was considered
literally a giant among men in his day, because he
measured 6 feet, 3 and ½ inches. Antique beds
made in that day were almost a foot shorter than
But with changes in nutrition and improvements in
health, the average height of Americans has been
steadily increasing. Today, the Average height of
American white males is 5 feet, 10.6 inches.
The average for African American males is almost

of the London School of Economics, in about
100,000 years we humans will split into two species,
one tall and one short.
The upper class species will be taller, more
intelligent, more attractive. The lower class species
will be short, slower-witted, less attractive and
goblin-like. The difference will not be racial, says,
Dr. Curry, because all of our descendents in
100,000 years will be a creamy coffee-color due to
For those of us on the shorter side, take heart.
Some studies have found that being taller increases
your cancer risk. A 2015 study from the Karolinska
Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, found that for
every 10 centimeters in height (above the average)
your cancer risk rises by 18% in women and 11% in
