Being tall has many advantages, but it turns out height has its downfalls, too.

In a new study, researchers compared women who had been diagnosed with cancer to women who had not.

They found that for every four inches of added height, there was about a 13 percent increase in risk of developing cancer.

Scientists say tall women should work out more and eat healthy.

Smokers are also encouraged to quit as their risk factors only increase.
