Yao Defen had a chance to become the tallest woman ever, but lost it when she had an operation to remove her pituatry gland.... she was still growing that time (the record was 8ft 1 by another Chinese girl who died at 18).

If she did not had that operation, she would have be around 8-9ft now...

It's funny that she's Chinese....when generally Chinese (and other Asians) are traditionally shorter than average :tape:

Yao Defen had a chance to become the tallest woman ever, but lost it when she had an operation to remove her pituatry gland.... she was still growing that time (the record was 8ft 1 by another Chinese girl who died at 18).

If she did not had that operation, she would have be around 8-9ft now...
Sandy Allen also had an operation on her pituatry gland when she was around 22 and still growing. She is still alive but mostly uses a wheelchair to go around. Allen suffered from gigantism and the tallest living person from inner Mongolia, China (not Mongolia as some have said here) apparently is not suffering from this. The Chinese woman also has normal limbs which may also suggest that here growth is not linked to gigantism. This disease makes a person have a normal torso but abnormally long limbs and enlarged lips, jaw etc.. Just look at the tallest person ever, Robert Wadlow who at 272 cm tall looked like he was walking on stilts.
A person will thus probably not overgrow Robert Wadlow unless a totalitarian nation decides to let its giants not undergo an operation in hope of becoming the tallest person ever. In some nations this is highly revered like in North Korea (where there is a baketball player taller than Yao Ming).
