A new study out of Norway suggests men over six-feet-tall are twice as likely to have dangerous blood clots as men under 5'8".

According to the study, it could be due to slower blood flow in taller men.

Height however didn't have an impact on a woman's risk.

But all 26,000 people studied came from the same town in Norway, making the results limited in scope.
