Tall does not mean healthy

Found this study while looking for other things. To be honest, I didn't actually see this as logical at first, but the tallest person in the world, lived only to 22. And one of the most tall folks that ever lived, could barely walk past a threshold. I'm 1.89, so I guess I'll live quite a few years less than most of you brilliant but shorter f**kers our there :-)
