    I’m Swedish, haplogroup J and 188cm.
    So I’m wondering how the J’s are doing, heightwise?

    There was starvation in parts of Europe from 1940-1952, so anyone whose bodies were supposed to grow in that generation, and didn’t, and who is currently in their 60s through 80s, would present a problem for this study. For instance, hundreds of thousands died of starvation in Greece during the wars of the 1940s. Many of the children whose growth was stunted were severely malnourished. And given the top heavy demographics of some of these countries (many senior citizens relative to younger people), you can see the problems in measuring height.

    So the Portuguese changed theirs haplogroup? Portuguese used to be a lot smaller say 165 Cms… And in Lisbon the average is above 176 Cms… My height, most youth are taller a than me… maybe above 180…
