(Q1) how do you grow articular (or hyaline cartilage)?
I know that your articular cartilage has to last your whole life since it 
doesn't regenerate itself very well(and someone else mentioned the glucosamine 
helps to regrow it over time). But do you know of glucosamine sulfafe does in 
fact grow cartilage? if it does, does it also affect the cartilage in the face 
and cause acromegaly (or distortion to a lesser degree)? What about colostrum 
or chondroiton?

(Q2) growing more aticular and fibrocartilage?
is there anything I can do (nutrition, exercises, stretching ,etc.) that can 
increase this cartilage? 

(Q3) growing healthy and more cartilage... 
can your other cartilaginous parts grow after you epiphyseal plates have fused? 
Like between your shin and femur or between your spinal disks?
