Having Hair In Your Ear Is A Warning Sign What Does It Mean
It’s 2016, and by this point, most of us know what puts us at risk for heart attacks and heart disease. On some level, genetics has a lot to do with it — but lifestyle can really change things as well. Weight, other health history, and whether or not you smoke can all contribute to your risk of getting coronary heart disease.
But there’s one factor you may not have suspected, and it’s all about your ears.
According to some studies, the amount of hairs you have in your ears might be an indicator of your future heart health. So why is this so? Some researchers and doctors have been trying to determine that for decades, and it’s explained in laymen’s terms below.
According to scientists, having black strands inside the ear may indicate a heart attack. What brought to this idea was the study done by Dr. Sanders T. Frank and his team and published in the New England Journal of Medicine, suggesting that a diagonal earlobe crease may be a sign of artery disease. CAD is an issue where accumulation of wax builds up inside the arteries and leads to atherosclerosis.
Interested in this ear-heart relation, scientists teamed with dermatologist to find the answers. According to a 1984 letter published in the New England Journal of Medicine, there is a strong link between the ear canal hair and coronary artery disease. The study involved 43 male participants and 20 female participants, 90 of which had a diagonal earlobe cease and experienced cardiac failure.
One study conducted in 1980 found that there was no significant relationship between earlobe creases and coronary artery disease in American Indians, suggesting that “Frank’s sign” may not have the same level of indication in other ethnic groups. Another study on Japanese Americans also found no correlation between earlobe creases and heart disease.
Yet other scientists propose that because the studies are usually conducted on patients over the age of 50, the results may be biased as individuals naturally have a higher risk for these diseases as they age. It could be that earlobe creases are simply a sign of the natural aging process.
Despite these doubts, most scientists and doctors agree that the appearance of an ear crease at the age of 50 and below could be a good indication that the body is not as healthy as it should be. For this reason, if you have an earlobe crease, or know someone with one, it is important to consult a doctor who can test your blood and determine if this odd indicator holds any truth.
