Why Are Nigerian Men Generally Small Compared To Others?

Camerounians, Ivoriens, Senegalese etc are taller, bigger and more masculine than Nigerian men who are not generally tall. Why?. It's only Hausas that tried a little bit to match these countries in height but not physique, others are generally short and round.

Is it our food or what else in our culture that is responsible for our small genes?. Can we reverse the small genes by intermarrying with these giant Africans?

This not a cultural issue.

Go and study biology and maybe visit a psychologist. Your misandry is getting out of hand.

Of course. . . . . .Nigerians are richer than Belgians. . . .

What is open to debate is if their wealth can be accounted for.

Are u shitting me?? Have u been to cricklewood n hampstead areas in London??

Bleep Abuja n Banana Island. Come n see rich Nigerians who put any Belgian arms dealer into shame.

Don't even test it. . . . .Nigerians are rich.

you don't just write or make an assertion without a clear data. how many places have you visit in Nigeria, and tell me where d most shortest man in Africa come from. that you are looking for a giant and you have not yet found one because of your own height as well does not mean you should step on Nigeria men's toe.

U don't know whatchu talking about.

How can you compare a country of 180 million to 18 million??

Taking an equal random sample is folly if not moronic.

There are more than 30 million tall Naija men(which almost doubles the population of Cameroun).

If you claim that Nigerians are short and small that means I come from Senegal?

when you said small, i thought you meant something else he he.

By the way, to answer your question, in Texas, we have this saying that in God we trust, others bring data. Which means that before you make an assertion, please back it up with numbers or hard data. Show me some data of height comparison of this countries you have spoken about, because all the ivoriens and camerounians you have seen are all big does not mean all of them are (geez, i don't need to be telling you this, you are an adult and should be smart enough not to be making this kinds of assertions). For example, one of my friends from honduras used to say that all nigerians are big simply because all the ones he met are big, i just used to chuckle to myself that if only he knew. My current roomate also has the same stereotype of africans simply because most black people he has seen are big, i had to set him straight. Your assertion could probably be true because most of the africans you see here are from aristocratic families and therefore are well fed so you are talking about the real cream of the crop.

In fact, i am going to stop arguing about this nonsense, just typing it makes me feel i am educating a toddler. Geez, i just can't believe that i just wasted 10 minutes of my life not only reading this thread, but responding to it, i just feel dumb.

Stop lumping them together abeg. That's crude statistics. Take an equal random sample from each group and compare their heights and physique, you'll understand that Nigerians and Ghananians to a large extent are considerably small compared to most Central Africans especially Cameroun.

U are comparing 180 million Nigerians to 18 million Camerounians.

Of course, by the law of average. . . .U will see more short Nigerian men than any African country.

The midgets in Oshodi alone will outnumber the whole people of Cameroun.

Raised with veggies, beans and cupcakes?? Liar!!!

U were busy munching Eba n Pap as a tot. It explains why you have the physique of a midget.

Starchy foods!!!!

St. Funmi was fed with garri for most parts of her childhood. . . .

It's only natural for her stand below average height compared to other Africans.

Does that change the question or the fact that Nigerian men are small compared to their counterparts in the west coast?
