Dwarfism on the other hand is a problem with the gene for bone elongation and there is still no known cure.
For anyone out there who thinks he or she is NOT a dwarf, the definition is 4'10" or less.
That means we have a lot of dwarves out there on FR and they should learn to hold their heads high, their backs straight, and smile.
A major center for dwarves is Southern Indiana. Indiana University does major studies into dwarfism in humans and in animals. Seymour, Indiana's downtown is pretty much owned by a dwarf. There are others ~ just all over the place!
Then, there's Helsinki, Finland. That's the other end of the flight between the two dwarfism research capitals of the world, Indianapolis and Helsinki.
I've heard you can count on 1 or 2 authentic dwarves on every direct flight, or dog-legged flight through Detroit between those two cities. And lots and lots of short blue eyed blonds ~ huge numbers in fact.
