Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: The Sense of Smell

Scent detectors found in the nose are also found in other parts of the body!

As we start 2018, we can be grateful for the intentional and wonderful way each one of us is made! For instance, we often take the sense of smell for granted. Yet physiologist Dr. Jennifer Pluznick says it has been estimated that humans can detect up to 1 trillion discrete odors! Enjoy watching this 7 minute video where she explains why there are so many tiny scent detectors found all over the body.
