Is your ring finger longer than your index finger?

If so, you're up to three times more likely to develop arthritis of the knee than women whose ring fingers are the same length or shorter than their pointers.The link speculate that it may have to do with hormones. This finger pattern is more common in women with low estrogen levels. Another clue: Men are more likely to have longer ring fingers, but form them, there's less of an arthritis link.
