It's often pretty easy to tell when a person is sick — a loud cough and runny nose are good indicators — but sometimes the symptoms aren't always so obvious. Now, a new study reveals that humans are actually really good at being able to tell when someone is sick, even if the signs are incredibly subtle and you don't know the person.
The research reveals that small changes in an individual's complexion, the color of their lips, and even tiny differences in how their eyelids droop can be enough to give away the fact that they are ill. Now, scientists are questioning whether our ability to detect sick people is learned over time or something that is hardwired into our brains at birth.
