height and diet

A year or two ago I read an article in the New York Times about
a study which compared the heights of Japanese-Americans and
Japanese; the Japanese-Americans were found to have a 
significantly greater height on the average, which was
attributed to the increase in protein in their diets. I used
to have the article and the journal reference, but I seem to
have misplaced them; does anyone have any pointers to the
reference? Even the approximate date of the newspaper article
would be helpful.
Apologies for posting to so many newsgroups; I wasn't sure which
was the appropriate one.
Thanks for any help,
Susan Chacko.
