Just curious,What is the average age that humans stop growing ? (height that is ! )
my doctor told me that girls stop growing about a year after their first period. anybody know if that's true?
hmmm. i started when i was ten and stopped growing before i turned eleven. i even ate right then... maybe i was just supposed to be short
i heard that men can grow into their twenties. girls definitely stop sooner. i think. lol
This may be related only indirectly to the question, but i was told that bone stops growing at an earlier age than cartilage does; in fact some tell me that cartilage never stops growing, which is why elderly people have longer noses and bigger ears.

Neil I'll let you know when I stop growing. LoL. Some how the doctor said I was going to be over 6 foot. Idk how they figured that out with my dad being like 5 10 and mom being 5 4. I'm about 5 9 right now. But i'll let you know.And Kayla like 14 and 1/3 years old and she is done growing.
You take a measurement at age 2 years approximately and triple it and that is an estimate of your end height!so if you are 2 ft 2 inches tall at 2 years old your guestimate would be approximately 6ft 7 and 1/2 inches tall, in the end.
It's so very individualized it's amazing. I'm 6'2" and I reached this height (or within a fraction of an inch of it) by age 11.
