It sounds strange, but numerous medical studies have
confirmed that a crease in your ear lobe is an accurate harbinger for death
by heart attack.
Pundit Cecil Adams cites
medical evidence that earlobe creases correlate to heart disease:
Earlobe crease (ELC), i.e., a line running diagonally from the bottom of
the ear opening to the ear's lower tip, and ear lobe creases relationship to
death by heart disease has been confirmed:
- A Swedish study of 520 autopsies found ear lobe creases had a
"positive predictive value" for coronary artery disease of 68 percent —
80 percent in those under 40.
- A Turkish study found ear lobe creases was a higher risk factor for
heart disease than diabetes, family history of cardiovascular trouble,
- Of 340 patients admitted to the Montreal Heart Institute, 91 percent
of those with ear lobe creases had heart disease versus only 61 percent
of those without.
- An Irish study of 247 patients found ear lobe creases had a
predictive value of 71 percent for heart disease, showing what
statisticians call low sensitivity but high specificity.
In reality, ear lobe creases indicate advanced aging.
Ear lobe creases and advanced aging
Here is my Dad at age 41, looking like an man of 65
years old. His ear creases are very prominent and predicted his death
at age 60 from a massive coronary. He had hardening of the arteries
and massive clots lodged in his brain, causing his auditory nerves to shut
