An Embarrassing Admission
January 25, 2011
I was flipping through the channels this past weekend and just happened to land on PBS, where they were doing a special on the Lawrence Welk Show. I have to admit that I used to watch this show in the 70s, and still to this day, if I ever stumble upon this show, I’ll watch it for the great big band music and singing.
I initially began watching to listen to the music, but as I observed the singers, I was truly impressed by their wide jaws and fully developed cheek bones. If you look at younger adults these days, you’ll see how narrow their facial structures are, with many having underdeveloped lower jaws. It’s a frightening thought that this situation is now pandemic throughout the modern Western world. What this means is that having smaller jaws can lead to smaller breathing passageways, leading to less efficient sleep, with all the various medical, psychological, and emotional consequences of not ever being able to obtain deep, quality sleep.
How many of you observe people’s faces and analyze their jaw structures?
