Tallest Living Womans In The World

The tallest woman alive
De-Fen Yao from China who stands at appx. 7'8 1/2" (2.35 m)
19 years ago she was diagnosed with Acromegaly – a disease resulting from a tumour on the pituitary gland causing it to pump out excess growth hormone
Thirty-four-year-old Yao Defen is known as Asia's tallest woman. At 7 feet 7 inches, 396 pounds, and a shoe size (EUR) of 78, Yao attracts a lot of attention. This "woman giant" makes her living as a circus performer. Her boss forces her to perform despite her physical ailments, and he even mistreated and bullied her when she requested to go to the hospital for a physical examination.

The second tallest woman alive
Sandy Allen from Shelbyville, IN (USA) who stood at 7'7 1/4" (2.32 m)

3th tallest tallest woman

Maria Feliciana Santos from Brazil who stood at 7'4 1/2" (2.24 m)

4th tallest tallest woman

Malgorzata Dydek, 7'2" (2.18 m)
Malgorzata (aka Margo) Dydek is the 4th tallest (known) woman in the world right now. Most extra tall ladies are absolute darlings and Margo seems to be no exception. It's certainly not easy to be 7'2" but it helps when you're a lovely person and there's no doubt that Margo fits that bill

Gimme a break. The Chinese can't be trusted any more than Westerners. Who has verified these measurements? Also, I think it is tragic what the Chinese did to De-Fen Yao. They denied her the treatment they KNEW she needed. I wonder if they did it purposely because they believed they had the "world's tallest". Isn't it interesting that they also claim to have the world's tallest man (up until Leonid) and the worlds shortest man?
