Height Increase: Can Mankind Grow Beyond Nature's Limits?


No one likes being called “shorty.” Aside from a few rap artists, few people like being called “lil.”

But with science paving the way for humans to (potentially) increase their height, Lil Wayne could one day become a Big Boi.

According The Quest for Height Increase blog, most of the research involves developing cartilagenous templates in the field of bioengineering, which involves the use of mesenchymal stem cells, chemicals (like IGF-1, FGF, BMP-2), and hydrostatic pressure.

Unfortunately, without the help of biotech companies and entrepreneurs – both of which are needed to provide the funding and innovative thinking that's necessary for a breakthrough – true height increase could be as many as 20 years away, says The Quest for Height Increase. On the bright side, the blog also reports that there are some scientists (like Hiroki Yokota at Rensselaer or Ping Zhang at Purdue) that could help speed up the process.

If and when a working method is developed, it will only be the beginning. The Quest for Height Increase says that there are as many fields involved in height increase as there are processes in the human body! As a result, the blog believes that there are several height increase-related products that could be designed and sold for profit.
