Yao Defen, believed to be the world’s tallest woman, has begun treatment in a Shanghai hospital for a brain tumor which is largely responsible for her extraordinary height.

Yao, who is from a poor farming family in eastern China’s Anhui province, is 2.36 meters (7.74 ft) tall, Chinese doctors say. That is 5 cm taller than Sandy Allen of the United States, who is currently listed by the Guinness World Records as the world’s tallest woman.

Yao, 36, suffers from a large tumor in her pituitary gland, which has stimulated her body to release excessive amounts of growth hormone and has made her bones weak, doctors say.

In Far Eastern cultures the family name is said first. Defen would be her given name.

I think the tallest man in the world is a guy in Pakistan who is 8 ft 2 inches tall....the tallest guy ever was Robert Wadlow who was 8' 10" I believe? I just read the Guinness Book of Records a couple weeks ago. :wink:
