In Historic First, Woman Is Cured of Stage 4 Breast Cancer

Did you know taller women are more likely to get breast cancer?

That's right!

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.
