In 2014, Shridhar Chillal from India set the record for owning the longest nail in one hand. It is known that over 60 years of his life, this man did not cut his nails.
At the time of the record setting, the fingernail in this person’s left hand ranged from about 164.5cm to 197.8cm.

The tallest man in the world
It was Robert Wadlow, who snatched the title of tallest man in the world in 1940 with a height of 2.72 meters. Born with a perfectly normal size, but since childhood, Wadlow has grown to outperforming his peers. At the age of 8, this man looked like a tower with children when the height reached 180cm.

Despite his great height, this is really a problem for Wadlow, things get worse as he grows up. Doctors diagnosed Wadlow with a strange syndrome, causing the pituitary gland and growth hormones to develop more than the average person.

Sadly, Wadlow died at the age of 22, from an infection in his ankle. Currently, the condition that he has contracted can be cured and prevented uncontrolled growth of hormones.
