Question: Why are Dutch people so tall?

The Dutch have grown so quickly in a short period of time that most of the growth is attributed to their changing environment. Since tall men are more likely to pass on genes that made them tall, the study suggests that the Dutch population is evolving to become taller.

When did the Dutch get so tall?

“In 1860, Dutch military men were about 165cm tall,” said Professor Louise Barrett of the University of Lethbridge, Canada, who was part of the study. “At that time men in the US were around 5cm taller.” This, added Barrett, made Americans the worlds tallest people.
