The human body is an amazing and precise machine which continues to puzzle scientists even today. Even with the aid of the best state-of-the-art technology, after thousands of years dedicated to its study, the human body continues to reveal its secrets one by one.
Of course, the processes of growth and maturation of the body have long not been a secret to scientists. They have been thoroughly studied and deviations from the norm are rarely seen.
But contrary to what they taught us at school, that our body stops growing after a certain age and only matures and ages, some parts of it never stop growing until the end of our life.
The nose is one of these. The human nose continues to grow throughout our whole life, to the horror of all those who spend thousands on rhinoplasties, hoping to get a nice, snub nose.
On average, between the ages of 30 and 70, the organ that gives us the ability to smell and is a source of money for cosmetic surgeons can grow by up to 1/2" (1.27 cm).
