When people of the older generation see children with big ears, they usually say that children with big ears are lucky, and this statement seems to be accepted by most people. Since the saying that people with big ears are lucky is so deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, does it have any scientific basis?


The bigger the ears, the better the hearing? What is the scientific basis for this?

Ears can also help us listen to the sounds in the world, enrich our spiritual life, and bring us happiness. When identifying directions, ears can better help us identify directions and bring a sense of security.


The organ of the ear can grow as a person grows up, although the growth rate is relatively slow. But if the ear can grow for seventy or eighty years or even longer, it will still be larger than the average person's ear. So generally speaking, older people tend to have larger ears.


For us humans, differences in ear size do not have a major impact on hearing. Even in the animal kingdom, ear size does not play a decisive role in hearing. In most animals with large ears, the purpose of large ears is more to help them cool down, but it does little to help them detect more sounds.

Generally speaking, old people who live longer have larger ears, but people with bigger ears may not necessarily live longer, because this is a saying that the opposite effect is the cause. Therefore, the saying that people with big ears are lucky actually has no scientific basis.


However, according to traditional Chinese medicine theory, the ears can reflect a person's health status. For example, people with sufficient kidney qi tend to have more developed hearing. In clinical medicine, there are examples of sudden deafness caused by excessive heart fire. Then there is a great possibility that the ears can reflect the health status of the body's internal organs.


No scientific basis has been found for "Blessed ears are blessed." People say this sentence is just a beautiful blessing.
