Did you know that your penis size could secretly reveal by the length of your index finger?You never imagined how your body parts are joined, knowing about them might save your life.
Find below ten crazy body connections:
What your VOICE says about your HEIGHT:
Scientists from Washington University found that only by hearing the speakers talk can accurately determine their relative heights by the listeners. The secret is in the frequency of “subglottal resonance,” a sound produced in the lower airway of the human lungs that gets progressively lower as height increases. Now you know why your tall buddies talk so low.
What your EYES say about your BRAIN:
According to a report published in Psychological Science, the small vessels behind your eyes could reveal how healthy your brain is. Scientists found that people with wider veins scored worse on IQ tests in middle age.
What your SKIN says about your BLOOD PRESSURE:
A study published in the Journals of Gerontology found that the wrinkles are not only a sign of aging more they could also portend ticker trouble. When scientists analyzed separated people based on cardiac disease risk and analyzed the youthfulness of their skin, found that those with the fewest wrinkles had lower blood pressure and lower heart disease risk.
What your HAND says about your PENIS:
After reading this, we dare you to not look at your hand considering that based on one Korean research in 2011 is found that men whose index fingers are shorter than their ring fingers tend to have bigger penises. The researchers say that is because the testosterone guys get exposed to while they are still fetuses controls both penis and finger lengths.
What your FINGERS say about your CANCER RISK:
Based on a study published in the British Journal of Cancer, the short end of the stick could put you at a lower risk of prostate cancer. Having less T in the womb could help keep prostate cancer at bay later in life.
What your LEGS say about your ERECTION:
A recent study from Harvard Medical School found that if you suffering from restless leg syndrome (RLS), you may have more serious problems than a case of the jimmy legs. Based on the published study, men who had, at least, five RLS episodes each month were 50 percent more likely to develop erectile dysfunction than guys without fidgety limbs. Both conditions are linked to low levels of the feel-good chemical dopamine, which might be one potential explanation.
What your TEETH say about your MIND:
A study published in the Journal of American Geriatrics in 2012 suggested your ability to chew might predict your risk of dementia. But do not get too worried if you have trouble chomping: The scientists do not know for sure if mental decline leads to poor dental care and less bite force, if difficulty chewing impacts the brain, or if it is simply just a random correlation.
What your PULSE says about your HEART:
Based on the study published by researchers at the University of Iowa, the flexibility of your aorta may soon be measured by checking the pulse in your finger. Your aorta is a major artery in the body that, when stiff, can increase your risk of dying from heart attack or stroke. That could be much more comfortable and good news, since right now doctors have to check your pulse in the femoral artery deep in your groin to screen for aortic stiffness.
What your SLEEP says about your EYES:
The research from Taiwan finds that people with sleep apnea are almost twice as likely to develop glaucoma an eye disease that can lead to blindness within five years. When you are not breathing at a normal rate, the loss of oxygen triggers damage to the optic nerves or causes abnormal levels of gasses in your blood, both of which could lead to glaucoma.
What your LIPS say about your MEMORY:
According to a study at Columbia University, if you are one of the millions of people who get cold sores, that pesky outbreak on your lip could put you at an increased risk for Alzheimer’s and dementia. Scientists followed adults between the ages of 60 and 80 for eight years and found that those with a higher infectious burden meaning they’d been exposed to a higher risk virus, such as herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 were more likely to have worse cognition.
