    Link: Bone Stretching - In China a painful surgical procedure called ``bone stretching`` can make people taller, but is it worth the risk?

    I feel like I saw this on TV when it came out or something.

    Did you know that the human race used to be a lot shorter? Yup. Better nutrition is one thing that helps that.

    But I`m naturally short. 5` and probably not going to get much taller. xD

    im 5`9 and way taller then most women where i live.
    wonder if they do it in reverse. my fiance`s 6 ft, so i always have to make sure i wear heels 3ins or less or i look like a freaky giant woman next to him.

    have seen this before in the uk tho, but only performed on dwarfs / midgets or whatever they like to be called nowdays. but they end up looking weird because they have long legs and short stumpy arms

    this treatment is internationally patented (indeed, that`s possible) by some German doctor. interesting that they`re copying it.
    at least better than the old, bone-crushing way...

    Wow, four inches. That`s a pretty big difference. That would make me about 5`11. I`m happy with my height, though I can understand why a guy that`s 4`8 would want to be taller.

    I`m 4`10, and every one I know is at least 5`3 or taller. I am sick and tired of my little sister (who is 13 and taller) being offered everything that I`m supposed to be offered! What boy wants a 16 year old girl who looks 11 years old???

    Anyways do you look 11 or do you just have the size of an 11 year old. There is a big difference

    this procedure is in use about everywhere where short ppl are around...
    also, to china: you are shorter than us, so get used to looking up or go kill yourseves... or mutate...
    either one is fine by me.

    i`m about 5`1 and i`m ok with that.

    Wouldn`t this mess with your natural proportion? You would be taller but you would have abnormally long shins. I`ll settle for heels.

    I`m 5`8", so I don`t feel like doing that, thanks. My crush might want to look into it, however; he`s 5`6" in sneakers, so he kinda feels a bit -short- compared to me.

    I`m also Hispanic, so I tend to tower over most of my family. It`s rather funny.

    How do they do it in secret if it takes a year of PAINFUL recovery? And wouldn`t they have awkwardly long tibias afterward? All 4" are being added to the shin! It seems like they would look like they were wearing mini-stilts or something.
