Washington: Length of fingers and whether a person wears high heels may indicate risk of serious health conditions in the future, according to a new book.Dr. David Agus, author of the new book “The End of Illness,” said that by learning to interpret the body’s signals, people can prolong their health and live their lives free of illness.“The end of illness is closer than you might think,” Dr Agus, also a professor of medicine at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, wrote in the book.But to be able to achieve that, people should look at their bodies in a whole new manner.“Medicine today is, ‘I treat the individual condition. Your joint hurts, I’ll give you something to help the joints.’ But I want to figure out why. What in your system allowed that joint to hurt. And I want to change the whole system in a different direction,” ABC News quoted Dr Agus as saying.Dr Agus said that the finger length points towards risk of certain diseases.
