Me and my friend are debating whether o not you can die from being too tall. My argument is that there is stress put on your circulatory system. My friend's argument is that your organs are proportional to your height. So, what's the correct answer according to you?


Statistics does show that taller people live shorter on average, but short also live shorter on average. Being a bit shorter than average will yield the longest life expectancy. In fact, the difference of life expectancy is very negligible between different heights. Only at extreme heights will it really matter.

Have either of you amateurs ever heard of gigantism in the hundreds among thousands of people which have died from it around the world? Clearly people can and have died from being too tall. Hell if you're over seven foot two you're going to have some pretty serious f****** health risk

The tallest normal human would probably have bones strong enough to support their weight. If you start using magic to get to 10 feet tall, good luck fitting through doors. 20 feet, you're going to the circus because they'd need you for the Freak Show.
