Tall People Prone To Cancer

I see that tall people have a greater chance of developing cancer than shorter people, with the risk of some types of the disease increasing by as much as 30% for every four inches of height

That at least is the conclusion of a study carried out by Sweden's Karolinska Institutet.

What does this mean?

Bugger all actually, for you see the study ignores all other factors that may or may not affect the health of those within the study.

Even the lead author, Dr Emelie Benyi, says it's meaningless:
"It should be emphasised that our results reflect cancer incidence on a population level. 

As the cause of cancer is multi-factorial, it is difficult to predict what impact our results have on cancer risk at the individual level.
What should we do?

Well, we could chop a few inches of our legs to make ourselves shorter or breed only with short people in order to ensure the human race stops becoming taller.

Failing that, do the sensible thing and ignore it completely!

    I was always told that smoking stunted your growth and also causes cancer.
    So therefore smokers should be short and get cancer.
    Tall people are obviously not smokers, so how can they get cancer unless it is from second hand smoke which must rise high in the air above the heads of short smokers.
    I feel sorry for tall people.
    I am going to go and have a lie down now.
