"There is an article "Study Links Broken Homes, Short Kids" in Newsday about a just released London study in Journal of the Royal College of Pediatrics. "After adjustments for other factors known to influence growth, including social class, crowding in the home and gender" they found that "children who live with warring parents or come from broken homes are more likely to be shorter." (Relationships skills make you grow in more ways than one!) They linked stress to the hippocampus and growth hormones, learning and memory."
