Did you know taller women are more likely to get breast cancer?
Taller people in general are at a higher risk of several types of cancers, including breast cancer. This has been shown by several studies, but it is still unclear as to why this is.
A detailed analysis that combined information from 7 studies discovered that women taller than 5'3" have up to a 20% higher risk of breast cancer than shorter women.
But, tall women also have a decreased risk in heart attacks and other related conditions.
