Hmm, I would like to see a double blind scientific study in "ear pulling" being connected to kidney health. (ps, completely different book here)

Study: "Ear length and kidney function decline after kidney donation "

"Our findings support the notion of Traditional Chinese Medicine that ear morphology may be associated with kidney health and suggest that ear length might be a useful predictor of kidney function decline after kidney donation. "

@BakerRL75 LOL I'm trying to figure out who gave me this "qigong" book. Undoubtedly made it here due to one of the relatives.

@ai6yr sent this to my friend who just donated a kidney for some light-hearted relief.

@HayiWena LOL need to enroll them in a data collection study, to measure the length of their ears every morning... for SCIENCE!

@ai6yr @John One thing to keep in mind: “Traditional” Chinese Medicine is in some cases a somewhat recent invention, not ancient wisdom.
