New interesting health fact

I just read a new study that they are thinking of putting into practice. I thought you all might find it interesting. If you don't like these bits of information I am sharing in the group, let me know and I will stop but they are finding that the strength of your hand grip is a better indicator of early heart attack, stoke and Alzheimer's onset then the systolic pressure of your blood pressure. I thought that was very interesting to know. It is something we all could measure a little bit ourselves and maybe do something about it. I know we are limited but we can maybe take some supplements or something that could help us. I just thought this may be something you would like to know. Please tell me if you would rather not hear things like this in our group. I don't want to bother are group.

The earlobe crease holds pretty correct as well. If you google "earlobe crease and heart disease" you can see the study and puctures. In having been in the cardiac catheterization lab and cardiac OR for more than twelve ears I saw it daily. Strange but true.
I am interested. Please share.
I don't know about hand strength the arthritis patients but for others sure.
Knowledge is power!

I wonder if early onset arthritis might be a sign of genetics with more heart problems, or strokes.
Almost everyone in my family has been diagnosed with arthritis by their thirties, but many of them also played instruments.
I had wondered if I might have some sort of arthritis, but after getting a different diagnosis I'm wondering if maybe other people in my family have been misdiagnosed.
I'm just thinking though.
