The 2-Second Test for Heart Disease (Do It at Home!)
Dear Turapür Today Reader,
Hey, I’ve got a big heart.
But I don’t want some surgeon getting a good look at it — especially if I’m in an operating room and he’s holding a rib spreader in his hands.
I can’t tell you the number of people I meet each year who are getting stents… or bypasses… or even open-heart surgery, all for heart disease that was preventable in the first place.
The secret to staying out of the hospital — or the back of an ambulance — is to catch heart disease early and do something about it.
Fortunately, researchers have just found a two-second method that may predict heart disease YEARS before you experience serious problems.
All you have to do is look in the mirror — at your ears, in particular.
If you’ve developed creases in your earlobes (especially both of your earlobes), you may be at serious risk for coronary artery disease (CAD).
In a study out of China, researchers recruited more than 550 adults and looked for creases in one or both earlobes.
Turns out the folks with creases in both earlobes were significantly more likely to develop CAD, which can lead to angina, heart attacks and strokes.
Now, I know what you’re thinking… this all sounds a little crazy. Aren’t those earlobe creases just wrinkles, like the kind you get other places on your face?
Believe it or not, this wasn’t the first study to link earlobe creases to CAD and heart disease. It’s becoming a pretty well-established fact.
CAD impairs your blood flow to certain parts of your body, especially extremities. Scientists believe these earlobe creases may develop from impaired blood flow.
So take a gander in the mirror and see if you’ve developed these vertical or diagonal creases on your earlobes. If so, talk to your doc about more testing for CAD.
And you also may want to consider starting supplements like CoQ10 or omega-3 fatty acids, which have both been shown to reduce your risk of heart disease.
