I'm 16 and i've been taking a whey protein supp. to make sure that i get enough protein in my diet, but my friends keep telling me that i shouldn't cuz it will stunt my height. Is this true? i'm about 5'8' and i hope to be at least 5'10'. Also does heavy lifting stunt your growth?
No. Lifting and/or whey protein will not stunt your growth.
Whey Protein is just powdered protein. Just think chicken breast in powder form.
Lifting doesn't stunt your growth. You are 16, the PERFECT age to start lifting.
Poo is also LBM - The Built
There is a study floating around about a group of german childern lifting at an early age, who grew to an average height with the few outliers.
Its true. infact i've become shorter... I was 5'5" before taking Whey protein and im not 5"3.5"

nah i don't think it is true, just a myth...like he said, the perfect age to start...maybe though start using whey when ur about 18, as you could derive that extra protein from things like Baked Beans

Shouldn't you grow a bit taller since your muscles are growing?
whey will not stunt your growth, nor will it make you shrink.
Heavy and frequent squatting will actually make you shrink or hurt your spinal cord growth slightly, since the heavy squatting puts loads of pressure on your spinal chord.
if someone is 5 8 and squatting 500+ pounds at a young age is that going to stop them from reaching 6 foot?
whey will shrink your penis though.
It's true, I read it in a study.
"It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"
"Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
"Bah. You know I hate poor people."

does whey really shrink your penis?
Oh yeah man it will, and don't forget water is bad for you.... Honestly im not sure if Manveet was serious or not, but you guys need to stop worrying so much. If youíre a little shorter, but are strong as hell and have a good looking body then who cares? Now on the whey subject... it'd be a tough decision. Get your protein or have a smaller penis. You decide.
whey does not stunt your growth.
