How To Measure Cancer By Fingers.


If you're a guy, hold up your hands. Is your index finger longer than your ring finger? If yes, you're a third less likely to get prostate cancer. Why? Well finger length is influenced by testosterone levels (among other things) which in turn effect prostate development and functionality.

This was the case for me! Hurray! I'm curious as to whether or not -higher- testosterone levels are better for your prostate than lower, or if it's the other way around. As much as I love being a manly man, if it means I'm a third less likely to get prostate cancer, then where do I buy my Twilight t-shirt?

Real men get prostate cancer. Read some medical journals one day and you'll find out that it takes a man to fight it!

Acording to this site, "boys with shorter ring fingers tended to be at greatest risk of a heart attack in early adulthood".
