Do Our Ears and Nose Grow Lifelong - The Real Fact Behind it

Do Our Ears and Nose Grow Lifelong Do you believe that our ears and nose are continuing their growth  with age?  Did you ever notice this changes in our body? It seems quite a fallacy, if we imagine a human body with long ears and a long  nose. But what is the real  factor behind this , lets look.

This statement above is 100% true , our ears and nose are still growing even after we got matured. The studies showing that our ears grows at an estimated rate of  22 millimetre per year. In the case of nose, a typical volume increase in men is about 29% and that of women is about 18%. Some studies showing that the nose size increases the most between 50 and 60 years of age.

The actual truth is that, our nose and ears do get bigger, but not because they are growing. The real fact behind is a common scientific force known as GRAVITY.

Our bones stop growing after puberty and muscle and fat cells also stop dividing . But cartilage- a plastic like stuff in our ears and nose continue to grow until the day we die. But this fact is some what mistake, because studies shows that, even cartilage does stop growing. Then how this growth happening? The cartilage is made of collagen and other fibers , which begin to break down as we age, this help the growth of cartilage .

Now return to the Gravity, we said that its not growth its the gravity  behind this scene. As we age , gravity causes the cartilage in our ears and nose to breakdown and sag. This results in droopier and longer features.
