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.

    Since I don't have hair on my scalp I have to compensate on my chin and lip... Damn genetics.

    Don't care about some study I've had a mustache since I was 18 and I'm 56 now so I sure as hell am not taking it off now.

    They are gross and disgusting to me....no matter how clean a man thinks they are...they are still full of bacteria and germs...If you were a caveman, they would protect your face from the cold of the north pole, while hunting walrus for food for the winter...

    Sometimes unhealthy for romantic relationships. My dad wore a Hitler mustache for months. It annoyed my mother to say the least. Then my father started to say that it was a Charlie Chaplain mustache- haha.

    Some guys look like creepy perverts with facial hair and others work out all right.So don't create a Hitler stach or a pedostach please!

    I don't believe the health part of it. but I've always had some sort of facial hair. I guess the bearded lady is an epitomy of good health

    I won't even date a guy without facial hair. My ex shaved his off, and I literally cried and refused to kiss him because he looked/felt like a stranger.

    My wife has never actually seen my face. I've had a full beard since before she met me. She insists that she'd leave me if i shaved it...I don't think she is serious...but i don't plan on finding out.

    I know they are out of style, but I look really funny without one. So I just keep it and my beard really short, like a few days beyond stubble.
