Index Finger Cancer – Does a Link Exist?

Posted Jul 17 2013 8:45am

cancer-BLB Some people just have shitty luck, I swear. You're just in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people doing the wrong things for all the wrong reasons. And this seem like all the damn time.

Let's face it: none of us know what will help us live forever, not unless cloning humans becomes a reality.

And this is not going to happen any time soon considering how some people think the scientific community is playing God.

This becomes abundantly obvious when some of the healthiest people end up with cancer, which is as ridiculous as it can get. Best part, we have pills for getting a hard on at 50 plus but we still can't come up with a cure for this disease. Apart from the fact that a cure for cancer might come from broccoli in the months or years ahead…

Speaking of obscure links and cancer, it's like Life showing you the middle finger, as science and medicine still look for answers. It's only recently that another anomaly which links the length of your index finger to your chances of getting prostate cancer that has drawn attention.

Index Finger Cancer – Does a Connection Exist?

more-middle-fingers For the most part, it seems ridiculous that such a connection can possibly exist in Life. The reason for this is because it's impossible to put one's finger on it.

However, there are a couple of studies that have tried to ascertain if this connection truly exists or not – of which the first of the lot was in the news in December 2010.

A study , which was conducted by the Institute of Cancer Research and the University of Warwick, and was published in the British Journal of Cancer, suggested that those men whose index finger was longer than their ring finger were one-thirds less likely to suffer from prostate cancer as opposed to men who had it the other way round.

The study used data collected from 3000 men who did not have prostate cancer along with 1500 men who did.

While more studies still need to be conducted, the truth is that diagnosis for prostate cancer isn't simple at all – in fact, medical experts believe that the PSA tests prove to be ineffective for the most part.

What has been suggested is that with the index finger being longer than the ring finger, the man, as a baby, was exposed to lower levels of testosterone, which results in a lower risk of prostate cancer in the end.

And considering how simple this test can be, it can reveal whether a person is likely to develop prostate cancer, especially those men who are in their sixties.

Yet with that, and according to latest developments, doctors aren't at the point where they can use this index finger cancer link as a part of their diagnosis since there's a lot more work to be done.

In Closing

So, what do you make of this index finger cancer link? Do you consider it to be a lot of hogwash or does it seem to make sense? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
