You’ll think twice about plucking your eyebrows when you discover their important role, says Greg Foot.格雷格 福特说:“当你发现眉毛的重要性时,你会考虑用力扯你的眉毛。

They are one of the most expressive parts of our bodies. With your eyebrows, you can communicate your feelings to other people whether you’re quizzical or angry. But is that their only purpose?

它们是我们身体最有表现力的部位之一。它能帮助我们与他人表达我们的情感,如我们是疑惑或是生气。但这是它们唯一的用途吗?

Over millennia, we have lost lots of body hair. So it’s curious that hair still remains on our brows. As the Head Squeeze team explains, the main job of the eyebrows is as a special form of protection for the eyes

数千年来,我们已经将身上大部分毛发褪去。而在我们的眉上仍有毛发,这很奇怪。研究人员解释道,眉毛最大的用途是以一种特殊的形式,对眼睛起到保护作用。

In fact, their job so important that some researchers believe if we didn’t have them, we’d have evolved some other facial feature to do the same task – so if it wasn’t for eyebrows, we’d look a lot weirder.

实际上,它们的工作如此重要,以至于很多研究人员相信如果没有它们,我们将用其他面部特征来表达同一个任务。如果没有它们,我们将变得怪异。
