I know, this debates has been done in the forum lots of times, but I want to share my opinions and I want to support my ideas with both scientific and statistical methods.
Richest People on Earth About 5 Ft 10". ( Top Three )
Bill Gates : 5 Ft 9.5" http://www.celebheights.com/s/Bill-Gates-1062.html
Warren Buffet : 5 Ft 10" http://www.therichest.com/celebnetwo...ett-net-worth/
Carlus Slim Helu ( Richest on Earth ) : 5 Ft 8". http://www.celebritynetworth.com/art...global-empire/
Toughest guys on earth,
Adolf Hitler : 5 Ft 8"
Mussolini : 5 Ft 6"
Napoleon Bonaparte : 5 Ft 6"
Joseph Stalin : 5 Ft 6"
Intelligent Guys :
Albert Einstein : 5 Ft 9" http://www.celebheights.com/s/Albert-Einstein-3193.html
Also I would like to add that, everyone knows that, Shorter Poeple fill better than Tall People in terms of bodybuilding. Current Mr. Olmypia Phil Heath is “Only” 5 Ft 9", and Ronnie Coleman is 5 Ft 10".
Now I have added all of Mr . Olympia Winners, Night Of Champion Winners and Arnold Classic Winners.
Guess what? The average height was “only” 5 Ft 9". (You can see in the attachment )
Also, one of the best lifters in the world are Average, Slighty Above Average or Below Average.
Ed Coan : 5 Ft 6" and 220 Lbs, one of the greatest Powerlifters ever.
Ted Arcidi: Was 5 Ft 10" or 11" : He was also world record holder in Benchpress.
Eric Spoto : He is “only” 5 Ft 10.5" and , currently has 722 LBS RAW Benchpress, World Record Holder now. ( Since 2013 )
Mike MacDonald : He has only “6.75” Wrists, “5 Ft 9” height, yet he was world record holder in Raw Benchpress once upon a time. ( 600 Lbs Raw Benchpress )
I also want to add that, one of the best fighters in history are near 5 Ft 10".
Joe Fraizer and Mike Tyson is about 5 Ft 10", and in my opinion they are greatest of all time.
Not to mention, Ikuhisa Minowa, who is “only” 5 Ft 9" , yet beat lots of 6 Ft + Guys in stage.
So I believe, 5 Ft 10" is great for men.
I also believe but 5 Ft 8" and 5 Ft 9" is close to 5 Ft 10" , so I think those heights are also good, but BORDERLÃ?Â°NE.
Any smaller than is unfortunately short.
Also, shorter people live longer, due to less damage on cells. Tall people have more cells, which causes them to repair more, and in each repair “Telomeres” got “shorter”. Once you have no telomeres, you die. Because cells can not renew them any more.
But I would like to add my view on that. First of all, you cant compare a short person, who is malnourished , living in 3 rd world country to a tall , healty person who got accsess to all food, better healht care etc.
Its clear fact that, in this situation a taller person could live longer.
But both guys have good health care, nutrition, sports etc., a short man will definately live longer than a tall person.
Thats why 30-40 years ago, scientists thought taller people have longer lifespan, because of misinterpratiton of datas. You cant just simply compare apples to oranges.
Now Japan developed country as USA and Europe, and their lifespan is higher than western world.
Also, if you are short, you will survive much better in Warfare. Chances of bullet impact reduced.
“Audie Murphy, who was shorter and lighter (165cm and 50kg) than the average US soldier, was the most decorated war hero in WWII. Being small may be an advantage in field combat based on statistician Frances Galton who calculated that a tall that a 33% higher risk of being killed in combat compared to a shorter one. Sarna et al (1993) also reported that basketball players in the Finnish military had the highest combat death rate during WWII. In contrast, the shorter athletes had the lowest combat mortality.(54)”
