Naturalheightgrowth a scam?
post #1

I believe that someday, there will be some kind of "magic pill" or operation that will get people to be taller after puberty other than leg legthening. The guy who operates this website "Natural Height Growth" has a large following even though it doesn't look like it by the comments (at least he claims he does).

 

He's been writing articles for years, maybe even a decade or more. But today, in a blog post he said that he has written the same articles a thousand different ways and that he has to call himself out on his own bullshit. Here is what he said.

 

"I think for a long time, I have been just going in circles, doing a dance of mental masturbation trying to say words which really doesn’t do much good. How many times can I write the words “Chondrocyte” or “Epiphyseal Cartilage” and still make the regular reader and visitor still interested and engaged in what I am saying?

I need to call myself out on my own bullshit, on the cognitive biases that have been making me procrastinate and not taking more action. I will say a hidden idea which so many internet bloggers don’t want to admit"

 

I appreciate all of the work that he his done and I think he visits this website. Do you think all of this work is legit or is the whole HI community full of themselves?

I don't have any desire to be taller, but I don't think the website is a scam in any way. This guy is doing what many others are not, and that is researching ways to achieve height growth in adults. I think if you bought this same subject up to doctors in reputable hospitals and medical facilities, they would laugh it off.

 

 

You need someone or a group to lobby for this kind of research because it will help a certain niche group and will potentially alleviate the need for the cost intensive invasive Leg Lengthening that so many are willing to undergo.

 

 

Then again, I'm 5'7. I get my share of Heightism, but those men 5'4 and under, I feel for them. I could understand why someone who was maybe 5'1 would opt for it.
