Excerpt
Humans grow because the cells in their bodies reproduce themselves. For example, skin cells are constantly reproducing themselves while other skin cells are dying. As a person gets older and bigger, the skin cells reproduce faster than they die. The same principle applied to bone cells. Bone cells are constantly reproducing. A person grows taller when their bone cells are reproducing at a faster rate than they are dying. When a person is an adult, the bone cells reproduce more slowly. As a result, dead bone cells are replaced more slowly, which is why adults do not continue to grow taller and taller.
