Height Gene Identified

A British scientist has recently identified a gene that controls human height.

Timothy Frayling from the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry in Exeter, UK, has found a gene that causes 90% of height differences. The gene, called HMGA2, is found in greater quantities in taller people. In addition, Frayling says he "expects that between tens and hundreds of additional height genes with similar effects will be discovered within the next few years."

Genetic research is extremely important to CSL's cause. We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to Timothy Frayling and others in his field, for their exemplary work.
