Men with big nose may feel ashamed. But a popular myth says that men with big noses are better lovers. In addition, researchers say that these people rarely catch a cold.

The explanation offered by American researchers from Iowa University is that people with big nose breathe less pollution, with up to 7% less than those with small noses. A big nose means better protection against microbes, because it creates a protective barrier to the mouth. This finding is a relief for those who feel embarrassed by their big noses.

One of the most famous men with big noses is French actor Gerard Depardieu.
