But milk is not the only ingredient.

So you're saying that salt makes people tall?

Only 1 small cup of activia every day to make the bowls keep moving and maybe some vla/yoghurt once a week

That's genetic.

There is a genetic factor for height, but nutrition plays a bigger role. This is an interesting article from 2016.

Things I miss about Asia when I am in U.S.:

(1) Generally better airport and better service on flight;
(2) Generally safer to walk in city (especially in Northeast Asia);
(3) Generally easier to find some food to fill up your stomach even in middle of the night;
(4) No tip or 10% tip at most (as contrast to the 15%, 20% or even 20+% in U.S.);
(5) Generally more varieties to see in each Asian city as compared to the monotonous city landscape in U.S.

Things I miss about U.S. when I am in Asia:

(1) The U.S. prime rib eye steak;
(2) The 75 in curved TV (practically it is unavailable in Asia since no store carries such big screen TV);
(3) HBO -- Game of the Thrones;
(4) Daily amenities like L'oreal Shampoo and Conditioner, St. Ives body wash. Most stores in Asia just selectively carry certain brands from U.S. Even if they are available, it is 2 times or higher than the price in U.S.

Of course there are 75 in curved TV in Asia, though personally I don't get the point of having such a huge television, but different strokes for different folks.

And Game of Thrones is easily accessible on internet so I don't understand why you need to be in America to watch it. It's got plenty of fans in Asia (though personally I absolutely can't stand the show).
