World's tallest woman

My curiosity led me to search for the world's tallest woman, and the answer? it’s Yao Defen of China! she claims to be the world's tallest woman, with 7′ 8″ (233 cm)feet. The reason for her gigantic height is due to her tumor in her pituitary gland, which was releasing too much growth hormone and caused excessive growth in her bones. She stopped growing when her tumor was removed, but the tumor returned so she was treated again in Shanghai in 2007.

This is Yao Defen, the world's tallest woman..
