The Better To Hear?
Facts of Life
In at least 12 scientific studies, scientists have found that people's ears get larger throughout life. And that means women's ears as well as men's. Dr. James Heathcote, a British physician, might have pioneered modern research on the topic with a 1995 study that involved several other physicians. They measured ear length in hundreds of patients, aged 30 to 93, and concluded that ears grow an average of 0.01 inches a year.
