Abstract

Intensive studies of individuals hold promise for expanding normal growth biology knowledge. Focusing on growth (not merely size), length (not weight alone) and individual growth patterns (not growth chart phenotypes) are important tactics. Benefits include clarification of mechanisms by which nutrition and metabolism influence growth, new solutions to abnormal growth states and improvements in long-term health consequences.
