Affect Height Growth

Does lifting 5-10kg weights affect height growth and pushups too do they stop growth of height...?
No and No: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. In rare cases, growth hormone is approved for use in younger, extremely short kids. ...Read more

No: two-thirds of the existing in vitro studies have reported some degree of increased chromosomal breakage following exposure to illicit or pure lsd. With one exception, these changes were observed with concentrations of lsd and durations of exposure that far exceeded the dosages commonly used in humans. In none of the studies was there a clear dosage-response relationship. ...Read more
Does mastubating affect the body? Is it harmful and does it decrease growth hormone? Does it affect height growth? Please answer me.
No. Some facts...: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It is not harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not stunt height, cause acne or hair loss, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage vision. ...Read more

I'm 19yrs old male...I masturbate once a week. My question is does masturbation affect height growth or does it decrease height growth hormone level?
Yes and no: Adult height is mostly determined by your genetics. Eating well and exercising will help you grow to your full potential, but not anymore than whatever your genes have decided ahead of time. People who are malnourished don't grow as much as they could if they ate well. I suggest you exercise, eat well, get plenty of sleep. All that will will help stay on track to grow as much as you can. ...Read more
Yes, it could: Undernutrition could indeed affect growth rates and thus final height. You only have a couple of years of growth left as a 14 year old male, so not getting appropriate nutrients now has a bigger impact than it would 5 years from now. It would be difficult to get the different types and amounts of nutrients you need daily with just one meal a day. ...Read more
Age 18, doing weight lifting, I am afraid of weights that will affect my height growth? I ain't really tall, 168 cm. What weights should I prevent?
Hard to say: At 18 most have finished their linear growth (growing taller) because growth plates have fused. When this happens, you have no further growth. If you entered puberty late, and your growth plates are open, it will be visible on an x-ray of your hand. If your growth centers are open, power lifting would not be advisable, but because of possible injuries, not growth potential. ...Read more
Will ejaculation cause the drainage of energy from the body? Will it cause the drainage of growth hormone? Will it affect my height growth?
Nothing special: Genetics and the growth centers of your bones determine how tall you can grow. Most growth centers will close at 16-19 years of age in males. After that happens, you can not grow taller. If your growth centers are open (xray), a balanced diet/rest ; healthy physical activity would support good growth. There are no special diets, meds or exercises that make you taller. ...Read more

No: This is just one more untruth that somebody made up to frighten you for their own dark purposes. It won't make you short, hairy, smooth, infertile, insensitive, a sexual cripple, or unspiritual. Generally it's a good thing that prepares you for adult life's thoughts and roles. If you're obsessed with erotica and missing appointments and other good things in life, your physician can help. ...Read more

Hi, I think I have bowed legs and im almost 17, do I need to get braces on my legs and does bowed legs affect my height or affect my growth.
Bowed legs: Hello JunedA, I like your question. Bowed legs in adolescents is commonly due to being overweight. but can also be caused by vitamin D deficiency, trauma, or kidney disease. Because you're 17, you're almost done growing anyway but I think going to a local doctor to be evaluated for vitamin deficiencies and other causes would be a great way for you to start your healthy adulthood. Good luck :) ...Read more
