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.What should we do?
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."
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!
