It turns out clues about a person’s identity and ethnicity can come from a surprising source: earwax.

Researchers from the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia decided to analyze earwax as a possible source of personal information based on previous studies in which researchers analyzed underarm odor to unlock clues about a person’s identity.

"Our previous research has shown that underarm odors can convey a great deal of information about an individual, including personal identity, gender, sexual orientation and health status," study author George Preti, an organic chemist at Monell, said in a press release. "We think it possible that earwax may contain similar information."

For some reason, I remember seeing or hearing of a movie somewhere about officials examining/studying the feces of a potential dissident while they were on the toilet. The theory being that the feces should tell the thoughts of the potential dissent while they were in their most ‘pensive’ state.

IIRC, it was some version of Gulliver’s Travels.

I had to dig down in the website a bit, but here’s the part we already knew:

“Monell’s funding comes entirely from competitive government grants, the Center’s corporate sponsorship program, and the generous philanthropy of individuals, corporations and foundations.”

Your tax dollars at work sniffing ear wax!!

“..sexual orientation...”

Some claim they were born that way,
the rest say they were just kind of sucked into it.

If you like your earwax, you can keep your earwax.

Homosexual earwax is how people spread Hearing AIDS. It’s usually contracted during unprotected aural sex.
