Tallest man ever

The tallest man ever recorded was American giant Robert Wadlow (1918–1940), who stood 2.71 meters, weighed 199 kg. Wadlow’s size was the result of abnormally high level of human growth hormone (HGH). He was treated with a blood transfusion and surgery, but his condition worsened and he died in his sleep at age 22.
