Do tall people live longer?

Well as interesting a case as this would be if it were true, there’s no conclusive evidence to suggest that tall people live any longer than short people.

You could say that perhaps taller people have longer days (since being taller allows them to see the sunrise earlier than shorter people), so it may feel as though you are, in fact, living longer, but alas there is no definitive answer as of yet.

Multiple sources have actually speculated on this topic, and many have come up with answers for both sides, therefore leading us no closer to any true answer.

Some say shorter people live longer due to a potential “longevity gene” that shorter people carry than taller folk, but any prolonged lifespan due to this gene has not been reported.
