For a long time biologists (and other scientists) have known that the shape of a animal’s nose depends on what type of climate it lives in, now more proof that your nose knows when the climate is about to change.
Pennsylvania State University published a study which concludes that you can’t blame the shape of your ugly snot-and-hair-filled nose totally on your parents, the climate affects its shape as well.
After looking at noses all over the world, using 3D scanning, researchers proved that people in cold-dry climates tend to have skinnier noses, and people in hot-humid climates tend to have fatter noses. Interestingly they say people in colder climates breed like rabbits: “People with narrower nostrils probably fared better and had more offspring than people with wider nostrils, in colder climates. This lead to a gradual decrease in nose width in populations living far away from the equator.”
The research into nose shape is considered important because the nose is the first line of defense for your respiratory system.
Oh, and by the way this is more proof that pollution is not the cause of climate change.
