We all know that living an unhealthy lifestyle can play a part in determining how long we will live.
But researchers say that how tall we are can also play a part in when we will die.
Last week, Britain’s tallest man Neil Fingleton, who stood at 7 feet 7 inches tall, died at the age of just 36.
While others including Matthew McGory, who was 7 feet 6 inches tall, and 8-foot-tall Robert Wadlow died before reaching their 33rd birthdays.
And scientists believe that large doses of growth hormone that causes people to grow extremely tall can take a toll on the heart and lead to premature death.
