Our earwax could help prove our identity and even reveal what weve eaten and where weve been, researchers have discovered.
Scientists from the Monell Center say the substance could even reveal information about our sexual orientation and health.
They say new tests could be developed to prove peoples IDand their ethnicity could be determined simply by looking in their ear.
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, said study senior author George Preti, Ph.D, an organic chemist at Monell. We think it possible that earwax may contain similar information.

Organic chemists ought to stick to their own discipline.
Could the smell of your EARWAX reveal where youve been, what youve eaten and even if you are gay? Scientists say substance is overlooked source of personal information
As hard as I try I can’t get my nose close enough to either ear.
If it reveals what kind of gossip we listen to, a lot of us will be in big trouble!
Fast forward to 2030 and the conversation with your assigned Obamacare doctor/IRS agent:
Doctor: I can see that you are reasonably healthy but I’m going to have to report you for eating beef which was banned during the Franken Administration three years ago.
You: Doc, there must be some mistake. I have been following the Michelle Obama dietary guidelines to the letter as instructed. I swear. I would never eat beef.
Doctor: That’s not what your earwax says.
You: Earwax? What earwax?
Doctor: That sample we took from you while we had you sedated. It revealed a high probability that you had consumed beef in violation of federal law. That will be a $5,000 fine.
You: No! There must be some mistake!
Doctor: The earwax doesn’t line. Oh, and while we’re discussing it, the earwax says you aren’t getting enough gay sex either. You need to watch that.
Some kid, maybe working late at McDonalds dealing with crazed, uncouth customers at midnight, then left cleaning the restroom after hours, payed for this with part of their paycheck.
Person B- "I work for the City, I am an earwax and armpit olfactory analyst."
Could the smell of your EARWAX reveal where youve been, what youve eaten and even if you are gay?
I’m sure the rear end could tell you that as well.
Ear wax? Gay?
I guess any port in a storm?
Smell my beard. That’ll tell you where I’ve been.
Reminds of that Buddy Hackett “Waxjob” story...
Stick a bendable straw up your nose....and stop being silly
Didn’t they do this experiment in the 90’s? I think it was with belly button lint.
You could find out the same things by analyzing any bodily secretion, given that secretions will always contain dead cells, which contain DNA, and that chemical residues present in the body will likely be secreted along with the mucous, wax, or whatever.
Me either - I guess I'll never know what I had for lunch or if I'm a homo....
You are innovative. That should come in useful as the democrats create thousands of jobs for earwax analysts.
Ok, now you're just trying to gross us out!
You're a Homo!
