- Zeng Jinlian
In the whole of medical history the tallest woman to have ever lived is Zeng Jinlian. She was born in 1964 and lived for just 18years, as she died in 1982.
Records and reports have it that Zeng Jinlian was standing at a great height of about 8feet, 1.75inches, which is about 248.3centimeters.
Researches are constantly being carried out as to ascertain why some persons are extremely tall and others are average or short. Recent findings show that it all goes way beyond genetics and hereditary. There are also studies into the correlation between extreme tallness and untimely death.
Statistics have shown that many outrageously tall persons end up living a short life, theories abound, but many of the finding are yet to be scientifically proven.
