Summary
In a remote valley in Ecuador, men and women of very short stature appear to be protected from cancer and diabetes. For 25 years, Jaime Guevara, an endocrinologist from Quito, has been studying these people, who suffer from the rare form of dwarfism, Laron syndrome. What mechanisms are protecting them from the diseases that are rapidly rising all over the world? Could the very thing that prevents them from reaching a normal height be what is protecting them?
