9 Surprising Nose Facts

by | Jun 16, 2012 | Blog

Younger You has launched an e-magazine about nose surgery. It features interviews with three of my rhinoplasty patientsAndrea, Edward and Sarah.  It also includes a top-line summary for easy to access information about nose surgery, such as the procedure and how long it takes, risks, recovery and cost.

For intrigue, they have also included a section titled, 9 Surprising Nose Facts. I must say that I was even surprised by some of these:

  1. You can’t hum holding your nose closed. Go on. Try!
  2. Humans can detect around 10,000 odour molecules
  3. According to Ayurvedic medicine, a pierced left nostril will reduce the pain of child-birth.
  4. A sneeze leaves the body at 965Km/hour.
  5. Our noses and ears never stop growing.
  6. Your thumb is the same size as your nose
  7. In New York it is illegal for citizens to greet each other by “putting one’s thumb to the nose and wiggling the fingers”.
  8. Rhinophobia is a fear of noses. Epistaxiophobia is a fear of nose bleeds. Snutophobia is a fear of blowing your nose.
  9. In the course of a lifetime the average person will grow two metres of nasal hair.

I have also saved a copy in the media section of this website, so you can download it from there as well.
