I have always wondered why I never got earwax on a q-tip like other people do. I also have never had body odor, and have even confirmed this with close loved ones after working out without deodorant. I’m in my 30’s, and have yet to have body odor!
So I looked it up. It turns out that the gene ABCC11 is the cause of BOTH the flaky earwax and absent body odor. I am curious if anyone else experiences this.
The gene is predominantly seen in Asians, but I am a Caucasian redhead with Scandinavian and English roots. If you do have this gene, what is your ethnicity?
