If you have more than 100 moles, you will age more slowly, resulting in fewer wrinkles, and a much reduced risk of osteoperosis. %0D %0D The reason involves segments of DNA called telomeres which shrink over time, but if you are a man of many moles, your telomeres are much longer. This helps put off the moment when cells are no longer able to divide and renew tissue.%0D %0D But, it's not all good for the estimated 10% of moley Caucasians, because they might be more prone to cancer.%0D %0D Does not apply to frecklers.

This is something I've speculated about for a while now. I've always noticed moley people had softer-appearing skin than non-moley people of the same age. I'm not moley.

I knew this guy who had an obsession with touching other people's moles. Maybe it was more like a compulsion. If he saw a mole on a random person he had to go up and touch it. Bad enough, but on top of that he was also a horrible person. I would have had sympathy for his freakishness if he weren't such a dick.

God so am I! My face is mole-less, but I have moles everywhere. I seem to block them out and imagine perfect skin, until someone points them out. Then I see the damn star-systems. But hitting my thirties I do look better than my peers, and none of them smoke. Thanks, 92-year old moley gran.

My younger brother used to say Michelle Republicunt Kwan never won an Olympic gold medal because the judges marked .10 for every mole and skin tag she had.

Kwan is popular with many women because she's so ugly. They think if someone ugly like her can become a millionaire in spite of her looks, they will find success too. The teeth, the moles, the nose as big as Texas. They find her homeliness endearing.

I had every mole removed from my body. My plastic surgeon used to talk about his avocado farm while cutting them out. By the time he'd done all the cortisone micro injections on repeat visits to remove every last scar, I feel I'd paid off his estate.
You can now have drug therapy to lengthen your telomeres. The downside is it's not for the poor and it's possibly carcinogenic. But quite a lot of people are having it.

I have quite a few moles - most look like freckles, but they are permanent.
If a mole is flat, removal leaves quite a nasty scar. A plastic surgeon took a mole off my arm, and left something equivalent to a small stab wound scar.

What is crazy is that some psychic people said meditation helps align your DNA. Well, new research says that regular meditation lengthens your telomeres! They were correct!

You are weird. I had a mole removed from my face, but it's because I was self-conscious about it. I must say, it made a big difference. As a friend put it, "my face opened up." And, no my mole was not huge. It was maybe 5mm wide, but it was sticking out and growing.
|by Nat Geo May 2011||reply 40||06/10/2011|
I have them on my face as well as elsewhere. No, I'm not lazy or stupid. The scars they leave behind are awful. I just live with it. If someone doesn't like them, too bad.

Enrique Iglesias did the right thing by removing his mole. Anyone who doesn't remove their hideous mole has poor regard for themselves.

My father died of malignant melanoma in his 50s. In his case, a mole went cancerous; he was diagnosed at Stage IV when it had spread to lungs, liver and and brain. Two other family members also had died of melanoma. I have an increased risk of melanoma, and I believe in health promotion/disease prevention.
My family history is why I have had 20+ removed and visit my derm annually. She has not removed all of my nevi - just the ones that have potential to be precancerous or are in places that risk irritation (along the shirt neckline, behind the ear where glasses sit). None have been removed for cosmetic reasons.

I dated a moley guy and t freaked me out the first time. I never really got used to his back being covered with moles (it really was like reading braille when we were fucking), but I wasn't as grossed out the more I got to know him.

Agreed, R38, my mother died of melanoma at 39. I've had several moles taken off that were in places that could be irritated by clothing/shoes/etc.
Of course, I'm also very careful to protect my skin from the sun. All you kids out there working on your tans, please think about the cancer risk -- if that doesn't bother you, think about wrinkles.

ok the majority of you really need to realise not everything is about looks, you can't define a person just because they have a mole. I have a mole and i hate it, by putting awful comments like this would only make people feel shittier about who they are, my mole isnt even that bad but i havent had my hair up since i was in primary school because of comments like this and by seeing more comments like this by 'adults' only makes me want to get it removed even more but because im so young my parents wont allow it, i just hope you realise some people may have fuck ugly moles but i doubt they are as judge mental as all of you, i do agree that moles are butt-ugly but seriously nothing should be just about looks get to know the person first before you judge their mole yeah?
