Check Your Lobes!

Do you have an ear lobe crease?  If you do, your chances of having a heart attack increase by 30 – 70% depending on which study you read.  Index finger longer than your ring finger?  Another bad sign.  Short legs too?  Buddy, you may not even get a piece of Thanksgiving turkey.

There are many body indicators that can predict heart attacks.  Scientists just don’t know why they do – and can’t agree on their significance.  That’s too bad because 50% of all deaths in Western countries come from heart attacks and associated diseases. And the first symptom of most heart attacks is also the last one: a heart attack that kills you.

So if you have any of these symptoms and want to live longer, you should probably eat less, exercise more, and give up smoking.  And if you don’t have any of the symptoms, you should probably do the exact same things.

UPDATE:  It doesn’t take much to amuse me (a necessity for writing – and reading – this blog) but I take great pleasure in the thought of  a few thousand people worldwide actually looking at their lobes or their fingers because of this post.  Call me superficial.  Thank you.
