I know when I saw this headline I thought "what the F%&K are we doing?? Are we that desperate for headlines or what? However someone actually put A LOT of time into this.
The length of a man's ring finger has been linked to his risk of dying of COVID-19 in a study, due to its potential links to testosterone levels. However, experts not involved in the research said that while the work is interesting, more research is needed to confirm the link between COVID-19 and the hormone, and no one should feel they are safe from the coronavirus.
Men with longer ring fingers appear to have a lower risk of dying from, or having, severe COVID-19,according to the authors of the study published in the journal Early Human Development. They came to their conclusion by looking at what is known as the digit ratio, which is thought to be a measure of exposure to testosterone in the womb. As more men have so far died of COVID-19 than women, some scientists have asked whether testosterone could play a role.
Are we just grasping at fingers here or what???
