In a comprehensive study by the Lancet,

19 year old Chinese are now the tallest in Asia, overtaking 19 year old South Koreans. Young Koreans and Chinese are now above 175cm or 5 foot 9 inches. I bet a lot of Korean nationalists would be annoyed, because previously Koreans were taller than Chinese, therefore proof that Koreans had so-called 'superior Korean genetics'. But Chinese youths are now taller than Korean youths. Japanese are still shorter than Koreans/Chinese, and to me one factor is that Japanese simply have less protein in their diets, and they like eating smaller meals than Koreans and Chinese.

I feel so damn short when I go back.

Has it been reported that the Japanese have less protein in their diet?

Height as an indication of superiority is one of the dumbest misconceptions in all cultures, especially in east asia.

Haha you're from dongbei right? People there are the tallest in China. Maybe you'll feel taller or tall if you go to Guangdong or Hong Kong.

Or you can just go to India. Young Indian men are still stuck at 165cm there. NRI (overseas) Indians are taller than Indians in India, however. Apparently 60% of Indians are malnourished. Punjabis are pretty tall though.

Japanese eat a lot of blue fin tuna sashimi and kobe beef.

It would take a war for Trump to stay in power which is unlikely. Trump and its crony just want to damage the US and China's relationship to a point of no return.

They don't eat wagyu beef everyday though... and sushi... They love eating curry rice カレーライス and low quality ramen day to day. Not much protein there
