Cold feet
They are a long way from your heart, so your feet are often the first place vascular disease shows up. Abnormally cold feet and hands are linked to Raynaud's syndrome, where the blood supply drains from fingers and toes. Cold feet

Long ring finger
An index finger shorter than your ring finger means you were exposed to high levels of testosterone while in the womb. That can give you ambition and a high sex drive, but it may also make you more susceptible to arthritis of the knee. Long ring finger
