Does mastubating affect the body? Is it harmful and does it decrease growth hormone? Does it affect height growth? Please answer me.

Does exercise have any affect in height / growth?

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

I don't eat much. I sometimes only eat once a day. Will this affect my height growth?

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.

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
