So I was listening to this older guy talk and I was fascinated by his ears…

Have  you ever wondered  whether ears actually get bigger as we age  - or is it just that our heads shrink…

I obviously I had to find out more about this! 

Check out this answer by Dr. Arthur Perry, MD.:

“…scientists in Italy have confirmed - ears actually do grow as we age. ..

Bones, stop growing after puberty and muscle and fat cells also stop dividing. But cartilage - that’s the plastic-like stuff in ears and noses - cartilage continues to grow until the day you die.

Not only does cartilage grow, but the earlobes elongate from gravity. And that makes ears look even larger.”     read more


Long hair anyone?

What do ya say?  Ever wondered about this one?
