Men, look at your hands. The fingernail doesn’t count…but….if your index finger is longer than your ring finger (or fourth finger), you run a significantly lower risk of developing prostate cancer.  According to a study from Warwick University and the Institute of Cancer Research in Britain half the men had an index finger that was shorter than their ring finger. Compared to this group, men whose index and ring fingers were the same length, which was 19% of the men, had a similar prostate cancer risk. But if the index finger was longer, the risk of developing the disease dropped by 33%.  33% is nothing to sneeze at…and yes, MY index finger is longer. Whew! But that doesn’t mean you/we are out of the woods just yet.  All statistics have their exceptions so it’s best to follow the guidelines for good prostate health as presented online by Harvard Medical.  http://www.health.harvard.edu/healthbeat/10-diet-and-exercise-tips-for-prostate-health
