Q: A British study finds that people 55 and older smile more than any other age group. Furthermore 70% of those say they never fake a smile. Some say it’s because people lighten up a bit as they age and see some of the fun and absurdity of some situations and just laugh it off.
The survey was conducted by the British Dental Health Foundation and Oral-B. Half of those surveyed who were age 55 or older said they smile more than ten times a day, and 70-percent of them said they’ve never faked a smile. Those between the ages of 35 and 44 smiled the least. Just 35-percent of those under age 55 said they’ve never faked a smile. And for those between the ages of 18 and 34, one-tenth of those surveyed said that more than half of their smiles are fake. (Daily Mail)
