DRINK YOUR MILK!

        Like most kids that are born in Taiwan, I have huge allergy problems. I sneeze my nose off every morning when the weather changes and when the pollution levels are high. As a result of the allergies, we are less likely to go out and exercise.  Honestly, when you get the allergies, all you want to do is stay in a comfortable environment. You don't want to talk, you don't want to eat, you just don't want to do anything.  I'm not a doctor but it's pretty obvious that pollution is huge contributor to growth problems amongst kids in Taiwan and Hong Kong.  I don't know if you have noticed, but kids that grew up in the US are bigger,stronger, and yes...sometimes fatter. I know this is a generalization and I have no medical proof to back this up, but hey.... there's always some truth behind every generalization.

Is it the diet? Is it the exercise?  Is it both? I personally think the real influence behind the need to be stronger and healthier came from this ad campaign in the 80's.

Remember this?

Video: http://tw.youtube.com/watch?v=_ApVq2yG0po&feature=related It blew my mind when I first saw this commercial. It's been stuck in my head ever since.

Very true that allergy can be a handful... I've been sneezing non-stop for the past month in HK! I don't drink milk alone, but I don't mind milk in coffee =)

It's a combination of things, but, yeah, diet plays a huge role.--drink our milk and eat lots of beef. lol! And there's more genetic diversity in the U.S. Just need to mix in some hardy Scots/Irish genes and Taiwan will be all set ;)

Um, my problem, I just never liked the TASTE of milk.... lol... However, my sister and cousin would have milk-drinking contests, and between the two of 'em as kids they took out entire gallon....
