CRAP !!
The truth is that “Yes”, as we age, our nose and our ears do get bigger, but
not because they are growing. The real reason is a common scientific force
known as GRAVITY. You see, our nose and our ears are made of cartilage and
while many people mistakenly believe that cartilage never stops growing, the
fact is cartilage does stop growing. However, cartilage is made of collagen
and other fibers that begin to break down as we age. The result is
drooping. So what appears to be growth is just gravity doing its job.
