This topic has caused turmoil in a small circle of people and
is now taken to the international level to be resolved.
Thesis Statement: A person who wishes to be tall and concentrates
on it constantly will in the end be a little taller
than if s/he did not have the desire to be tall.
POINT: DNA preprograms a persons height, an thus cannot be changed
regardless of any other influences.
COUNTERPOINT: Emotions and mental state can indirectly have a large influence
on the bodies chemistry, and therefore can increase the chances of
reaching full potential for growth and can exceed that potential
on a limited basis. A persons mental state can favour certain reactions
to go to completion.
If there is anybody who could settle this discussion once and for all...
PLEASE DO SO!
