It is said that a crease in one or both of your ear lobes that angles downward at 45 degrees toward your shoulder, can be an early indicator of heart disease. Doctors who have studied this folk diagnosis, agreed that after eight years, the men and women who had the ear crease, had significantly higher heart-related diseases than those who did not have the crease.

Doctors have said that both thin and overweight people have the crease in equal numbers, thus dispelling the assumption that the crease is a result of extra fat on the ear lobe.

Please consult your doctor if you have any health concerns, or on any medication.
