#1.) We've all smelled OLD PERSON SMELL, but kind of assumed it was some mix of moth balls, decorative soaps, cabbage soup, and unwrapped butterscotch candies. It's not. It's actually a real body odor thing.
--Researchers in Philadelphia found that people were able to identify whether someone was under 75 or over 75 just based on their smell. They believe our body odor does slightly change as we age, and our noses pick that up.
#2.) Want to quit smoking? You have your best chance as a younger woman or an older man. A new study in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. found that women in their 20s and 30s and men over 60 have the highest success rates in quitting.
--The researchers believe it could be a matter of having SERIOUS motivation. Women have their best motivation to quit when they're younger and pregnant . . . men's best motivation comes when they're older and it's either QUIT OR DIE.
#3.) American heads just keep getting bigger. Must be because we keep getting smarter, right? A study out of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville found that the average U.S. head has grown about 0.3 inches in the past 150 years.
--That sounds small, but it's significant . . . the researchers don't have a theory why our heads are expanding like this.
