Tall Women in Asia?

In certain countries like the Philippines, younger generations are significantly shorter than those born in the 1970s and 1980s despite the economic growth and better standard of living.  This is kind of interesting….

In Malaysia and Thailand, younger generations have experienced increased height. Thailand females are about 3″ taller than Filipina women.

And, there are also some interesting statistics that show intelligence is correlated with height. By this measure, the Thai girls with an extra 3 inches should be smarter than the short Filipinas. (he-he)

…studies have also demonstrated a positive correlation between height and intelligence. The reasons for this association appear to include that height serves as a biomarker of nutritional status or general mental and physical health during development, that common genetic factors may influence both height and intelligence, and that both height and intelligence are affected by adverse early environmental exposures…
