Did you know that the health of your heart can be determined by your earlobe?
Oddly enough, a diagonal crease – or lack of crease — in your earlobe may determine the health of your heart. Although scientists are exploring the reason behind the link, a 1992 study of hospital patients was the first to report that those with an earlobe crease were far more likely to have coronary artery disease (CAD).
In fact, this indicator was 94 percent accurate at predicting which patients had CAD, prompting the researchers to suggest that this weird clue be used to help identify at- risk patients. More recent research also linked earlobe lines to risk for sudden cardiac death in men.
