Tallest Woman Died

{Photo grabbed from Yahoo}

I am not fond of reading the book of Guinness World Record but accordingly the woman listed as the tallest woman in the world, Sandy Allen, died on Wednesday at age 53.

She was born 6 1/2 lbs but grew tall. Accordingly, she has a tumor that caused her pituitary gland to produce too much growth hormone. She underwent an operation in 1977 to stop further growth. I think what she had was called gigantism.
