In brief: Desire to be taller
Many americans in particular desire to be thinner and taller, either for health or for cosmetic reasons.
They are looking for a quick fix to obtain these goals. Any medicine, diet or supplement that claim to give you a quick and safe path to being thin or taller is likely a hoax.
