should we be concerned that this kid is german?

Genetic mutation turns tot into superboy

BOSTON - Somewhere in Germany is a baby Superman, born in Berlin with bulging arm and leg muscles. Not yet 5, he can hold seven-pound weights with arms extended, something many adults cannot do. He has muscles twice the size of other kids his age and half their body fat ... DNA testing showed why: The boy has a genetic mutation that boosts muscle growth.

natural mutation or genetic manipulation? either way this kid sounds freaky.
