WIKY Morning Show Re-Cap August 5th


WIKY Morning Show August 5, 2011

**We love surveys that connect seemingly random things –

 According to a study out of the Polish Academy of Sciences, people in long-distance relationships are more likely to have TALLER CHILDREN than people who aren't. 

 The reason?  It's better to have children with someone who was born as far away from you as possible . . . and people in long-distance relationships are more likely to be from different places.

 When you have kids with someone from far away, it cuts down the chance of minor genetic inbreeding . . . and gives your kids the best odds of being as tall, strong, and healthy as possible.  

 People in long-distance relationships averaged boys who were 20% taller and girls who were 14% taller.
