    Yetos Some here are saying it is silly. I do not. Greek foot is a dominant trait controlled by DNA. It is also called Scottish toe (per a racist forum I chanced upon). So, what connects the Greeks and the Scots? How about R1b Y DNA? It is also called Royal Toe. What Y DNA is prominent in European royalty? R1b DNA.

    I have Greek toe as do several of my cousins. I was told by one that Greek toe in Greece is often cited as descent from royalty as a kind of tourist patter. Southern Greece has some 28% R1b Y DNA. So, it is likely linked to one or a tight few DNA sources, spread as a dominant trait to other Y DNA and mt DNA.

    I think those that poo-poohed your post are targeting you rather than using their heads. How else does a dominant gene get transmitted widely (among many other DNA), but is prevalent trait among a certain Y DNA population?

    Nobody is making fun of Yetos. Teasing is different from ridiculing. However, to think you can tell y lineage from toes is indeed silly.

    The majority of people in Greece are NOT R1b, yet virtually every Greek statue or copy of a Greek statue I've ever seen either has "Greek" or "Roman" toes, long toes anyway. I think it's like the absolutely parallel to the forehead version of the Greek nose: I just think it's what they thought was beautiful.

    The majority of people in Britain ARE R1b, and yet I read somewhere that the majority of their feet are either Celtic or "Egyptian".







    Upon careful reconsideration of this important topic, I previously made an error: I think I have Greek toes as well as a modified Greek nose.:) Strictly a coincidence, I assure you.

    I stand by what I wrote. Here is what Yetos' asked 'does anyone know if it is connected with DNA ?
    maybe an exclusive mark? or majority of Greeks suffer from bad bone structure' Your comment reinforces my observation of his treatment.

    I broke my toe playing soccer and didn't bother to go to the doctor to mend it properly.
    I used to have Egyptian feet, now I have 1 Egyptian and 1 Roman.

    Well I am Egyptian, leaning toward Roman. I break my toes frequently and was told by a doctor that I have mutant feet because the two toes closest to my big toe have 2 joints instead of 1.

    I'm trying to picture it. :)

    Lucky you didn't break anything else. No matter what Americans think, soccer is no game for sissies. Those headers are very dangerous, for one thing. I'm sure cycling stresses the body as well.

    Any sustained physical activity can be dangerous, of course. I broke my nose on a ballet barre because some idiot girl fell into me just as I was coming up from a grand plie. It happens. My ankles were sprained so many times once I went on pointe that I finally had to give up.

    I console myself by thinking of ugly ballerina calves, feet and toes. :)

    It's really no joking matter. Some of the pictures are so disturbing I won't even link to them.

    Still, at the time I was so obsessed that I would have given anything to continue.

    @Wheal,
    Your doctor has a great bedside manner! :) I swear that a lot of them are on the autism spectrum.

    In fact, I don't know if mine is Roman toward Egyptian or Egyptian toward Roman. :) They look like Roman in a first look, but the big toes are a little longer than index toes.

    Alas, I'm very shallow. I love my feet, but I would not love my feet if I had broad feet with short, stubby toes, even if it did make wearing certain shoes less painful. :)

    Speaking of which...

    Ah, well, my nonna always said you had to suffer to be beautiful...

    Yes, Classical Era statues have feet where either the second toe is slightly longer than the first or they're the same size. I probably first noticed it because of my own feet.

    23andme gets it slightly wrong for me. My second toe is indeed a tiny bit longer than my first, not like Morton's toe or anything. We must have the same set of alleles for this.
