Hmmmm. Not sure what to make of this.
Apparently a new study says handshake strength 'could predict' heart attack risk and and is a "stronger predictor" of death than blood pressure checks.
The article notes, "The international study, involving almost 140,000 adults in 17 countries, found weak grip strength is linked with shorter survival and a greater risk of having a heart attack or stroke."
The reason I'm skeptical? It's because I have a crushing grip thanks to years of milking cows. Often I have to back down my handshake lest I hurt the person I'm greeting.
On the other hand (no pun intended), maybe that means I'll live forever....
