We grow taller when we are young, but we stop growing once we reach adulthood. Believe it or not, there is a special island in the world where adults can grow taller! The majority of the island’s inhabitants are extremely tall. Even foreigners may grow taller after spending time on the island. The island’s unique characteristic has earned it the sobriquet “The Grow Taller Island”…
Martinique is a Caribbean island located in the eastern Caribbean. It is a small country with a total land area of approximately 1,090 square kilometers and a population of approximately 315,000 people. The majority of the island’s inhabitants are extremely tall. Adult Martinican men are on average 190 cm tall, while adult Martinican women are on average 174 cm tall. Martinican men who are shorter than 180 cm are likely to be mocked as “dwarfs” by their peers.
What’s more remarkable is that foreigners, whether children, teenagers, adults, or elderly people, may grow taller after spending time on the island. According to legend, every decade, an unexplainable phenomenon occurs on the island: all adults, men and women, mysteriously grow taller. If this mysterious grow-taller phenomenon is true, it will be a huge blessing for short people who want to grow taller.
Every year, tens of thousands of tourists from all over the world visit the island, and, predictably, many of them are short. As a result, Martinique has been dubbed “a paradise for short people” by some. Not only humans, but also animals, plants, and insects, are growing at a faster rate than usual on the island. Ants, flies, beetles, lizards, snakes, and other animals on the island grow in size every decade. Some rats on the island, for example, have grown to the size of a cat.
Is there a scientific explanation for the island’s inhabitants’ height? Scientists have been working on this puzzle for many years and have finally found an answer. Martinique’s black spar crystal: It turns out that the island contains a significant amount of a type of radioactive mineral. This radioactive mineral can cause organic changes and stimulate growth in the human body.
It’s no surprise that the island’s inhabitants are so tall. The radioactive mineral’s grow-taller effect may also affect tourists visiting the island, causing them to grow taller. Isn’t it wonderful that the island has beautiful landscapes and that one can grow taller?
