A new study is showing a link between taller women and a high chance of getting one of ten different cancers. Which sucks, because it isn't like you can do anything about how tall you are.
Researchers followed 1.3 million middle-aged women in the United Kingdom for several years, and found the risk of cancer increased by about 16% for every 4 inches or 10 centimeters of increased height.

Looks like someone's got a thing for the taller ladies!
Last we heard from Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley, we were pleased to see how well he was getting along with his ex-wife Avril Lavigne.
While the two have remained close friends, it appears that Deryck has moved on romantically, as the singer was spotted holding hands with his new lady friend (above) while headed to El Lay's Roosevelt Hotel last night.
We want to hear more about the new lady, Deryck! Give us some deets!
What do U think of the Sum 41 singer's new girl? Do U think she looks like a good match for him?

Other than this whole blood clot thing, tall men have it pretty great!
Unfortunately, the blood clot thing is a problem.
In a recent study, researchers found that big and tall men are more likely to have higher rates of Venous thromboembolism, which is the cause of blood clots.
Tall men (6 ft. or taller) were 2.6 times more likely to develop venous thromboembolism than short men (5 ft. 8 in. or shorter). And obese, short men were at 2.1 times greater risk than skinny, short men.
There’s a similar trend in women.
This means that if you’re tall or obese — watch out! Make sure you’re healthy and check with your doctor if you’re worried!
