Earwax is Racist

Posted by on February 2 at 12:44 PM

Well, maybe not racist, but as this KING 5 report makes clear, members of different ethnic groups have radically different earwax.

Specifically, East Asians produce dry earwax, while those of European and African descent produce wet earwax. For full info (as well as fascinating comparisons of different ethnic groups’ body odors) go here.

They should do an earwax test with Jean Enersen, Lori Matsukawa, and Joyce Taylor and then compare.

That is so funny I need to take a nap.

My dad is East Asian, and my earwax is decidedly wet. And my mother's genes aren't that dominant.
