Good Luck.
People in Japan are having surgery on their hands to change their future. Japanese are big believers in palm reading. They spend lot of money on visiting palm readers. cheaper palm reading costs around $70. Many people are unhappy with lines on their palms. They think some of lines mean part of their future will be bad. They are having operation to change length and shape of lines because they hope this will give them brighter future. operation takes just 15 minutes and costs about $1,000. doctor uses electric scalpel to burn line on palm of the hand. It leaves scar that takes month to heal. line looks like money-luck line, happiness line or love line.

There are many doctors who say changing lines on your palm does not work. They say it cannot change your future because it isn't natural. Subodh Gupta, palm reader from London, agrees. He said: "I read about this surgery and I was very surprised. Even by having surgery, lines cannot be changed." He added: "If you want to improve your fortune, take physical actions. So if you want greater health, do some exercise." However, people who have had surgery say it has changed their life. Tokyo surgeon said he gave female patient wedding line and she got married soon after. He said two other patients won lottery after he made their fortune line longer.
