Weird Theory: Belly Buttons as a Sign of Mating Health

According to Dr. Aki Sinkkonen belly buttons are a sign of mating potential in fertile women:

"the symmetry, shape, and position of umbilicus can be used to estimate the reproductive potential of fertile females, including risks of certain genetically and maternally inherited fetal anomalies."

The theory seems to be that if you've got problems as a fetus, somehow they're reflected in the shape of the belly button. And such problems may mean you're a less desirable mate later on in life.

So what does this say about supermodel Karolina Kurkova who reportedly has no belly button.

Do not touch my belly button!!!
I hate having anyone, including my husband, touch my belly button. Yuck yuck yuck. Strangely though I like other people's belly buttons.

if anyone doesn't have a belly button it is a result of surgery for something. my umbilicus had to be removed due to a hernia, 3 actually it was a pretty major surgery. as to fertility i don't know, it was a normal innie and i had my kids before the other sugery. belly buttons on guys don't interest me much, i'm usually looking a little lower don't cha know! 😜

Kyle XY comes to mind. But I thought fertility in a woman centered more lower on down?

Edgar, around here we're all a bit suspicious about what new agencies (and their evil minions) have to say. Especially when they've obviously been brain washed by an alien.
