    I lost to both genetics and hormonal influence. That being said, I am 5' 7"...expected to be taller given how athletic I was during my primary growth period, having played so much basketball and such.

    it is incredibly random, if ur parents r tall, then ur chances of being tall are the same as someone with parents who are short, yao ming for example

    nothing proven

    I had friends who don't play any sports and they are taller than I am. I am 5'8" and I am very active. So nothing proven. I agree with drinking milk and rest enough.

    Yao Ming's parents are both 6'2+, they are not short to begin with.
