Nose and Ears grow throughout our life
Is it true that, our nose and ears grow throughout the life?
Some of us might have come across the above mention fact in some point of their lives. And also, some of you thinks that yes, its true because nose and ears are made up of cartilage, and cartilage never stops growing. But it is a myth that cartilage never stops growing. Cartilage do stop growing after a certain age. In the same time, it is also that nose and ears grow throughout the life.
Then how is this possible???
So, here is the answer, Cartilage is made up of collagen fibers and they begin to break after a certain age. And the rest of the work is done by The Universal Gravitational Force (or simply GRAVITY). Due to breaking of these collagen fibers cartilage becomes weak and droops down. So, this means just gravity is doing the job. So, our nose and earlobes sag become larger. And in the mean time our chicks and lips loose volumes, making everything else look comparatively larger.
So, it’s a myth in true sense that our nose and earlobes never stop growing. But in the same time it is also true that they seems to be growing through out life.
