Fact of the Day: Ring Heart

Vena amoris is Latin for "vein of love" which refers to the vein in your ring finger of your left hand. It runs all the way to the heart. This is a reason given of why the left ring finger is where you're suppose to wear a engagement/wedding ring. However this actually a bit deceiving as all fingers have veins that go directly to the heart.

Yeah, I love this trivia when I heard it. They say it's the most direct to the heart, but there's the argument indeed about all fingers with veins connected to the heart. :)

Yes...if only one had a vein going straight to the heart, I think the others would look a little black and bony:)
