It could be, we dont have gmo food, but it doesnt mean they dont put chemical crap in foods here. My dad is 5'11" and mom is 5'6", my dads younger brother is 6'1", my mums one year younger brother is 6'1" and second younger brother 6'2"/3" im not sure somewhere like that. Majority of my friends are 6 foot and over im counting friends from middle school, high school and college.

That post was definitely an exaggeration. I live in Wisconsin and travel to Minnesota frequently and I'd say around a quarter of people are 5'10'' or shorter. I can't imagine someone 5'11' being considered super short.

I have lived in both Utah and Nebraska before and here is the trend in my opinion.

Utah as far as ancestry has a very large Danish population and a very large English population. Many people are Danish/English ancestry mix. There is a much larger Swedish percentage then the typical western state also.

I don't think Utah residents are tall, but I would say the are about average. It seems like most guys there are between 5'9 and 6 foot. I don't see as much of a range in height in Utah as other states, although sometimes that is the case.

Nebraska I see much more of a range in height in Utah. I would say on average Nebraska is taller then Utah but just slightly. It is not out of the ordinary to see a large variance in height in one store in Nebraska.

Nebraska certainly isn't as tall as Minnesota which is unusually tall for some reason. Minnesota in fact is quite a bit taller then North Dakotans and South Dakotans.

North Dakota has lots and lots of Russians from Germany that in my opinion aren't tall at all.

Seems about right. So 179cm in Utah, 180cm in Nebraska. Nebraska has same avg height like my town, and every day i see dudes who are 5'10'' to 6'5''. But most people here are 5'11'' and up. Most of shorter people in my area are people who are 50+ years old.

But these stats i found were from here http://www.deseretnews.com/article/3...e-numbers.html and for Nebraska http://journalstar.com/news/local/ne...d70ab2dbc.html

I dont know about Minnesota, on reddit one guy said when he traveled over there it didnt seem much different from the rest of the country, seahawksfan33 also confirms it he posted few comments in this thread, so i think Winconsin is the tallest state.

Living in Wisconsin I'd probably say this is the tallest state. No noticeable difference in height between here and Minnesota really. One of my Minnesota friends is 6'1'' and actually says he was usually in the top 1/4 of his classmates in height but in Madison he feels about average. I'd say the average White male here is around 6'0''-6'1'', but there is a wide range of height. Around 15% of men are 6'4''+.

I'm quite amazed every time I travel to Chicago's North side. Average height is probably 2-3 inches shorter than here, and so few people over 6'2''. My 5'9'' friend goes from being taller than 15% of people to almost average height.

It's not even necessarily a Germanic/Nordic thing. I've been to heavily Norwegian parts of the state and the people are no taller than anywhere else. Even people who claim to be mostly Irish or Eastern European seem to be taller than Northeast folk of the same background. There's a family I know where all the males are 6'5+ and they're English/Irish.
