What Your Chin Can Say About Your Health

Does childhood affect the shape of your chin, or does your chin dictate your childhood? This has been the question that led a group of scientists to a study that connects different shapes of chin to childhood events. Their results have puzzled and amazed an entire world. They found out there are 4 types of chin and all of them are connected in some way or another to an event and later on in life, to certain health issues.

Read on and see what your chin has to say about your health as an adult.

1.    The bulging chin. This kind of chin bears the medical name of prognathism and is characteristic to individuals that can boast with good muscles and a strong skeleton. They are however prone to plumpness. The symmetry of the chin indicated it is a legacy from one of the parents.

2.    The slanted chin or otherwise known as retrognathism can be identified by a concave chin and tells the story of weak musculature, flexible skeleton and predisposition to color blindness. The owners of such a chin are born underweight as a rule.

3.    An asymmetrical jaw is seldom inherited, instead it is a cause of body stress in childhood. Lack of protein, presence of heavy metals in the body, obesity and smoking are all reasons why such a chin appears. People with large families and low incomes are most prone to such chins due to the lack of medical care and poor nutrition. Such type of chins are present if the person chews more with the left or the right side, if they use their teeth to crush food instead of grinding it and if their gums seldom bleed.

4.    Symmetrical flat chins are completely inherited and are not influenced by any external childhood factors or the environment.
