Yes, this is true ! Try it !
Our bodies are amazing! They are full of mysteries and surprising facts such
as this one: Did you know that you are about a centimeter taller in the
morning, when you have just woken up after hours of lying down, than you are
in the evening?
Another example of a human body ratio is a person's arm span—the distance
from the middle fingertip of the left hand to that of the right hand when
stretching out both arms horizontally—to their height. This ratio is
approximately a one to one ratio, meaning that a person’s arm span is about
equal to their height.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
