An exception to early mortality of excessive growth

Recommended Posts

Mccoy thanks for posting the list of tallest people.  It doesn't look like any of the tallest women have had good longevity which I find interesting since women typically outlive men.  I wonder if there is a stronger inverse correlation between height and longevity for women than for men?  I think most super centenarian women were significantly shorter than average.

It looks like Martin's record longevity for a tallest person will be broken since a couple others have come very close and there are so many on the tallest list currently living.  Although Martin was born in 1837 when life expectancy was barely half of what it is today.
