Meeting of extremes.Mr. Sultan Kosem, the world's tallest man, measures 8'1'' from Turkey was pictured with world's shortest woman Ms. Amge, 62.8 cm height from India, in front of Pyramids in Egypt.
The meeting was organized by Egyptian Government to boost their struggling tourism industry.
The giant man's incredible height is due to the condition known as pituitary gigantism which causes the body to produce abnormal amount of growth hormone while Ms Jyoti Agme's tiny stature is due to a form of dwarfism known as achondroplasia.
Here, my question is,
Is that good to display the dramatic size difference between two humans due to medical issues for promotion of tourism? What is your opinion?
Is there any other species than humans with such a size difference between fully grown up adults? What you say?
