ABSTRACT. To our knowledge the case of El∙Ma is the first to demonstrate that different organs (hair for bio-elements and height & weight for stature) may have different growth rates at a different period of time, i.e., that partitioning in the intermediary metabolism of the body is changing at the various stages of growth.
