Finger Size And Lou Gehrig’s Disease

DETROIT (WWJ) – Do your fingers hold a clue about Lou Gehrig’s disease?

Possibly.

British scientists say if a person’s ring finger is longer than their “pointer finger” it could be significant regarding their risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

The UK  researchers say the ratio between the fingers is already linked to many other traits, including whether someone is good at sports, their level of aggression, and whether they like high stakes trading on the stock market.

Scientists say this finger size- trait is believed to be determined in the womb based on how much exposure a baby has to the male hormone testosterone.

The study is published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.
