is it possible that a man who is born with more chromosomes and
has no types of retardation (a normal non disfigured man) is it
possible that he may
be faster, stronger, smarter or be more advanced in any general
skills or attributes?
I doubt it. When ever the chromosome content is changed, the result is
always abnormal. The chromosome balance is critical.
