    The main idea of Mewing (Orthotropics) is that correct tongue posture can greatly change one's facial features over time.
    Mewing has gained a lot of fame, and many youtube vloggers have given personal testimonials on its purported effects.
    Here's a video lecture by Dr. Mike Mew describing exactly what Mewing is; he has also provided evidence to support his claims.
    Following that, I did some research and found some criticisms.
    "Orthotropics" or "Mewing" isn't on Wikipedia or on Snopes, and I'm baffled by that.

    I presume that most of you are very intelligent sceptics, familiar with fallacies such as cherry-picking, familiar with the scientific method, and well versed in the ability to do research.
    Therefore, I want your opinions on the content of Dr. Mike Mew's video lecture, as well as Mewing in general.
    How much of Mewing/Orthotropics is pseudoscience?
    Does Mewing actually deliver what it claims to deliver?
    Does Mewing work on adults?

    Thank you.

    No, it doesnt actually work. Its another in a long line of modern day fake remedies to con people out of money. The attachment points of the tongue have nothing to do with facial symmetry

    How did you come to these conclusions?

    Mew does not have a symmetrical face. If this is what it's supposed to do then he failed.
    Women are far more likely to have facial symmetry. Liz Hurley is one example frequently mentioned.
