removed text[edit]

This text was added by User:75.36.134.13 who vandalized the vegetarianism article as well as several others:

Early epiphyseal closure during adolescence may cause stunted growth. A common source of this is steroids or other hormonal imbalances.
Lack of epiphyseal closure, due to several conditions like estrogen insensitivity syndome and other hormonal imbalances, can cause osteoporosis even in men, alhough tall adult height.

If someone with more medical knowledge can look this over, agree with it, and add an appropriate citation, they should add it back to the article. —mako (talkcontribs) 06:06, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Disambiguation[edit]

I think Epiphysis should go to a disambiguation page, from which you can link either to this page or to pineal gland. In any case, disambiguation should never be part of an article in the way presented here. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 137.224.52.242 (talk) 15:22, 15 May 2007 (UTC).

Picture: Why is it another language?

epiphysis is another name for pineal gland —Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.173.63.11 (talk) 10:16, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Inconsistency between text and diagram[edit]

The text refers to the metaphysis and the epiphyseal plate — but the diagram does not show the former, and shows an epiphyseal line (not plate). It may be that line and plate are interchangeable, but it would be much better if the diagram was consistent with the text (or vice versa). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.44.171.36 (talk) 06:01, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
