    Interesting tidbit from Dr. Oz show yesterday afternoon.

    Put a pencil vertically along side your face, lined up with the outer corner of your eye. If you do not have any eyebrow hair on the other side of the pencil (opposite from your eye) it could mean you may possibly have a thyroid problem.

    Dr. Oz said that the eyebrow hair of people with thyroid problems starts to fall out from the outer side of the brow.

    I though that was interesting!

    I love Dr. Oz!

    I have eyebrows outside of the pencil and don't have thyroid problems that I know of, so it worked for me! :lol:

    Wouldn't work for me....Left side...I was on a stool in pantry when I reach up and a glass lid came flying down and shattered my temple and eyebrow. They had to put in stitches, but first took off eyebrow!

    Silly me! I had a test done at the hospital. All is well with my thyroid, BTW.

    Just think what we could have saved, all we needed was a pencil--and hopefully eyebrows outside of it. :)
