Factors affecting human growth (height) and growth after age 30.
What are the factors affecting growth (height) in human being? Is it possible to increase height after the age of 30?
Most of the factors affecting growth are genetic and physiological. Growth plates in the legs (called epiphyseal plates, located at the end of each leg bone) are areas of growth in humans. This is what causes leg bones to grow. Bones are dynamic tissues that are capable of maintenance and remodelling. The plate is found in children and adolescents. In adults, who have stopped growing, the plate is replaced by an epiphyseal line. This replacement is known as epiphyseal closure. Earlier on in the womb, a process known as endochondral ossification creates the initial bone tissue. Both play integral roles in human growth where research shows does stop at adulthood. Certain pituitary cancers can cause abnormal excessive growth in humans that can last for decades after adulthood.
Growth is mostly due to genetics and diet. After age 30 I do not know any natural way to increase you height. I'm sure there may be some surgeries but I would not do that. I would just get your body nomatter your size in excellent shape through exercise and proper nutrition.
Human growth depends on multiple factors such as (i) Genetics, (ii) Ethnicity, (iii) Birth-weight, (iv)Premature-birth, (v) Hormones, (vi) Nutritional, and (vii) Environment. Among these Genetics, hormones and nutrition are the most important factors.
There is no report in the literature on the biological growth of human at and post 30 years, unless it is artificiality done through surgical procedure or genetic modifications!
