Do you guys know what the hell are those tiny white stripes on nails? I've always had those and I've never known what they were...

Indicate lack of zinc in your diet...supposedly anyhow.

EDIT: Pumpkin seeds will see to that.

They're the death-from-AIDS countdown. One they go past the end of your finger, you may have only 50 or 60 years to live.

Happens to me when I let my finger nails grow out to long, happens to everyone, I think.

its from a lack of vitamins/minerals in your diet.
brute force on the knuckles can also cause this.

I know for sure its not a lack of calcium since I drink a lot of milk + I eat a lot of cheese..
But in the case its a lack of zinc, what kind of food has some (apart from pumpkin seeds haha)?

They're left over from the days when our monkey overlords raced us for sport.

Eat a bunch of pennies.

Actually, most vegetables have the vitamins and minerals you would need. If you can't look it up, just take a multi-vitamin.

hahaha, seems like I'll never know since I've already heard all of those hypothesis :
lack of vitamins VS deposit of Calcium ...WHICH ONE??????

You got nail cancer dude go see a vet.

lul

I always thought they were bruises..

Meaning, you hurt your nail when it's growing under your skin and it grows out..

Dunno how that works, I seem to always get them but I never hurt my hands..

I get those all the time. I've heard hundreds of things about what they really are. I've given up.
#24
I've had them as long as I can think. I eat very healthy and doubt it has anything to do with nutrition/calcium/vitamins in my case. What it is? I have no idea and I stopped caring a long time ago (even though I wouldn't mind if I ever found out).
