The late, great comedian and writer Nora Ephron absolutely hated her neck. She actually named a book after it – I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman (2006, Knopf).
It’s why her signature look was a black Chanel turtleneck. “Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn’t if it had a neck,” she wrote.

They found lead, cadmium, chromium, aluminum, and five other metals, some of which were found at levels that could raise potential health concerns. Their findings will be published online in the journal Environmental Healt
