Are Mustaches Good for You?

Things that are good for you: fruits, vegetables... and mustaches? Researchers at “Radiation Protection Dosimetry” found that facial hair actually provides protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. The journal, which focuses on measuring the amount of radiation people absorb, also found that longer mustaches provide more protection than shorter ones. The same goes for beards, of course.

And ladies: you're not excluded in all the (healthy) fun. Separate research has also found that the hair on your head also protects you from the sun -- especially if it's long.

WASHINGTONPOST.COM reports:

Hipster men of the world, rejoice: Those ridiculous mustaches you have been growing are more than a fashion statement.

    I don't know really if a mustache is "good". I woke up one day, and there it was. Pretty much like I was born equipped with two eyes, two arms, a butt, two legs, etc. It's me. Good or bad, I don't know - but like anything else, some girls dig it, others don't. Since I don't need all the girls, things work out well.

    How is a friggin' moustache good or bad for you? You know, I see men all the time with food, snot and who know what else stuck in it, and who can even imagine what lay under it without throwing up in your mouth? I think (as RN) they are unsanitary and unless well taken care of, just nasty.

    IMO, no. I've never had the patience to grow facial hair past the 5 o' clock shadow. It's itchy and it just doesn't look good.

    I think guys grow these things just to hide their face and try to look like someone they're not. A small mustache may look good a well groomed guy but beyond that but beyond that the beard, gotee or whatever just looks like thye are trying to project some tough look or cover up a fat face.

    Very few men look good in a mustache not to mention, they trap food and body oils and smell.

    I'm offering free mustache rides to the first 491 women who say "Count me in"

    This offer wont last forever ladies. Plus, if you act now, I'll throw in TWO mustache rides, you just pay processing and handling charges.
