Quote:The sticky build-up in our ears is an annoyance everyone has to deal with – from getting residue on headphones to impacting our ability to hear.

Scientists have delved into the greasy world of wax to unveil it is in fact made up of a host of stomach-churning ingredients.

The slick orange substance is made from a grotesque cocktail of dead skin cells, fatty acids, cholesterol, and body fat.

Usually seen lurking in the outer ear, the wax is in fact produced in the ear canal, which is between your outer, visible ear and your middle ear.

I barely produce ear wax. I know some people that have to clean their ears daily or they will quickly get plugged up.

They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

I guess you two northerners are smart enough to not produce it now.

chuckle.gif A few years ago I got an ear infection while swimming, that makes you produce a lot a bad things and it was awful to get rid of. Ear pain is as bad as toothache. Since then I use a blow dryer to dry up any moisture that stays in my ears after swimming.
