    Aloha,

    In the link attached, is a published article from the UK. Researchers claim that facial width to height ratios are an indicator for testosterone levels in males.

    Are there similar bio-metric properties in the foot that could be measured as well to reflect testosterone levels?

    Further studies have claimed a links of the biometrics of the female chin to testosterone levels as well.

    If testosterone has a measurable affect on foot morphology would this then have an affect on foot pathology?

    Tough to prove, good thing too.

    Mahalo,
    Steve
