The 10 Tallest People in History

Some people literally stand head and shoulders above the crowed. You'd only have to be a bit over eight feet tall to be one of the tallest people ever, but such stature comes at great cost. First, you suffer from the underlying condition that causes such growth. Then, being bigger than normal itself causes physical problems, such as stress on the joints, backbone, and heart. However, there's one story in this list in which modern medicine succeeded in stopping a giant's growth. That wasn't true for Bernard Coyne, pictured here, who died in his early twenties. Coyne only ranked number seven on the list. Link  -via the Presurfer
