Anosmia Awareness Day

Today is National Anosmia Awareness Day, an event that was created by Daniel Schein on Facebook. The goal is to raise awareness about anosmia. As an outward sign of support of this cause we are wearing red today.

3 MILLION AMERICANS SUFFER FROM ANOSMIA! And yet, anosmia is not a word that everyone knows, like blind. Everyone knows what blind means. Who hasn't imagined what it would be like not to be able to see... Have you ever wondered what it would be like not to be able to smell? For an Anosmic person, every day is scentless. Think about that!
