Just king of wondered, if all of Bean's body grows at the same rater, so that he is the larger version of a normally proportioned adult, why would his heart and lungs be too weak? Wouldn't his larger heart, veins, arteries, lungs, etc. be able to sustain his super sized body, since they would be on the same scale?
I know it seems to be accepted that people who turn into giants in the real world out grow their hearts, but I kind of figured the way it is described in the books, he should be okay.
I'm pretty sure that as a body gets larger linearly, the work required to support it grows exponentially. Not sure WHY I believe that, but I heard it somewhere and it sounds reasonable
