Height did not increase due to malnutrition
However, with regard to the mummy, the researchers concluded that this mummy was actually a premature baby, who died about 400 years ago. Along with this he also said that the previous generation of Makhunik residents were actually smaller than normal. Malnutrition must have been the biggest reason for the people of Makhunik not growing in height. Because it must have been difficult to raise animals in this dry region. Dates and only a few trees were found here.
People of Makhunik are no longer dwarfs
The most important thing is that in Iran, where tea is given for hospitality, people did not drink tea in Makhunik. One person said about this that because opium addicts drink a lot of tea, so if someone was seen drinking tea, people used to think of him as an addict. In the middle of the 20th century, the construction of roads and vehicles brought the people of Makhunik to other parts of the food supply, including rice and chicken. Although the length of the 700-800 people living in Makhunik today is comparable to the average length.
