Did you know that according to the latest research, the taller the person is the shorter their lifespan is?
Growing a bigger body means that cells have to divide more. As a result, telomeres (regions of repetitive nucleotide sequences at each end of a chromosome, which protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration or from fusion with neighboring chromosomes) become eroded faster and cells and tissues function less well as a result.
Say for example to Robert Pershing Wadlow, the world's tallest man (8'11.5") died at the age of 22.
Did you know that under Metabo Law of 2008, Japanese government strictly implemented that being overweight is considered illegal unless you are a sumo wrestler?
Once caught being obese, one should undergo a 3-month dieting guidance. If after 6 months still obese, one should be given re-education. If an obese caught working in a company, a company will be charged with financial penalties.
Did you know that in the year 1912-1948, a painting was part of an Olympic event?
Sculpture, architecture, music, and also literature were part of the Olympic competition. The first person and the only Olympian in history to win medals for shooting and sculpture was an American named Walter Winans. He was one of the two people in history who had reunited Muscle and Mind in the Olympics.
The other one was a Hungarian named Alfred Hajos who won 2 medals in swimming in 1896, and then 28 years later won a silver medal in architecture for a design of a swimming stadium. The aforementioned Olympic events were abolished in 1949 because nearly all entrants were professional.
