Your Body Shape Reveals Your Health
People with shorter legs should be more aware of the condition of their liver, while the lower people live longer …
Leg length, the range of hands, waist and other characteristics of the body, can bring about certain diseases.
Women whose index finger is shorter than the ring finger, have doubled risk of development of osteoarthritis in adult life. The same relation to the length of the fingers is common in men as well, but in women it reveals lower levels of estrogen which slows down the appearance of bone diseases. To prevent it, people with such features should regularly exercise and consume recommended doses of calcium.
Women who at 20 years of age wear D-size bras, have 1 ½ bigger probability to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes than those who have smaller breasts, showed a study by the Canadian Medical Association’s Diary.
It explains that the fatty tissue in the breast is hormone sensitive, and affects the appearance of insulin resistance. Diabetes can be prevented by maintaining a healthy weight, balanced diet and physical activity.
People who have shorter legs should be more aware of the condition of their liver, as advise by British experts. They found that women whose legs are long from 50 to 73 cm on average have greater value in liver enzymes that indicate a disease of this organ. This condition can be prevented by reduced intake of alcohol and other toxins.
