Ever want to discover the roots of your ethnic descendance? Now here is a shortcut. A study claims that you can tell your heritage based on the shape of your feet. Remove your shoes and socks and check your feet to find out where your ancestors originally came from.
This may sound skeptical, but there are some science behind the relationship.
- Human genome determine such physical factors as skin, hair and eye color, shape of body and limbs, and many more from baldness to disease tendencies.
- Human Morphology is heritage dependent.
- Some studies suggest such endemic tribal or family characteristics as lack of fingerprints (adermatoglyphia), for example in an outstanding number of Basque peoples.
- Mixed origins make this study more complicated as very few and rare are the supposed “pure” lineages.
I guess as a result, my roots are a mix of Greek & Egyptian as the shape of my feet looks more a mix of both 1 and 3. What about yours?
