    Seemed a bit ranty at times. Many people are willing to trade health for goods. Like sleep for example. So why should it be any different for height? Health in exchange for increased quality of life.

    Cancer is also an anabolic disorder so changing your lifestyle to avoid cancer requires extremes. Trying to avoid cancer is like trying to avoid a disease that’s present in air.

    Also, tall may use more resources but there are tons of other ways to conserve resources other than being shorter. Like more mass transportation. Shrinking people is a bad target for resource conservation.
