Question

I've been drinking coffee around ages 6-9 years old because my grandma always made it and I always tried some, and now ever since she passed away I don't drink it anymore. Do you think that took away some of the height I was suppose to get? Does coffee stunt your growth or cause you to develop slow?


Answer

Studies have shown that coffee has no impact on a person's growth.

"In more recent times, another idea took hold of the public's imagination regarding coffee -- that it had the power to stunt a child's growth. But just as a pot of coffee boiling over doesn't mean it's going to rain (again from those old wives), the assertion that the drink makes for a nation of hobbits has been proven false."
