The effect of diet on the face

"The action of certain foods in influencing the formation of the features has been watched, with highly interesting results. The growth of the chin has been discovered to bear a very striking relation to the amount of starch consumed, and particularly when the starch takes certain forms or is combined with other properties....

It has been shown, and seemingly conclusively, that a flesh or greatly mixed diet promotes angularity in the face generally, while the nourishment obtained from a single article, commonly of a starchy nature, coarsens the features. Thus we have the potato lip, the oatmeal lip, the maize lip."

From Fauconberg, W. (1905). "The effect of diet and climate on the face." The Strand Magazine: 418-423.

The obvious lack of any reference to bacon renders this 'study' moot.

Woah! That was fun, at least for the 1st hour, then I couldn't find my score? Did I make the leader board?

Didn't know that smoking had an effect on the ears. Quite strange
