Dermatoglyphics & the ‘atom’ of palm reading – a moment of science!
September 22, 2009
Scientists may not tell your future from reading your palm. But what they can describe your vulnerability for acquiring certain genetic diseases from your individual palm prints!
Is there really any truth to palm reading? The study of dermatoglyphics – the medical study of the fine skin ridges on your fingertips and palm – can be described as the fundamental basics of modern hand reading.
|Today there is no scientific evidence linking the lines on your palm to your fate or fortune. However, scientists have learned that your palm and fingerprints do have a story to tell!
A FEW QUOTES:
“The ridges on your hands, fingers, feet, and toes formed while you were still in the womb, five or six months before you were born. They are the result of stress patterns that formed as your hands and feet developed. Because the growth pattern of every fetus is slightly different, your finger and palm prints are absolutely unique. Even identical twins have slightly different patterns.”
“Many genetic diseases affect the way that the fetus develops. This results in characteristic irregularities in the palm prints. Scientists have statistically linked dozens of genetic diseases to unusual palm prints. Sometimes even viral diseases can leave telltale traces on an infant’s palm.”
“Studies have linked irregular palm prints to such diseases as schizophrenia, fetal alcohol syndrome, and even allergies. While they can’t tell you how long you’ll live or how many children you’ll have, the lines on your palm can tell you something.”
