Did you know that finger length can affect your health?

Women whose pointer fingers are shorter than their ring fingers have a higher risk of osteoarthritis and polycystic ovarian syndrome. However, they also have a lower risk for heart disease, possibly because of a higher dose of testosterone in utero. Who'da thought?

My pointer fingers are shorter than my ring fingers. I think my mom's might be too, and she has arthritis.
Read about this and other hand signals of health.
