My Biology Extended Essay on Body Temperature

Recommended Posts

I basically want to know if it is okay to research body temperature as the measuring includes putting the thermometer inside of one's ear. I looked at the EE guide for biology, but all I could manage to find was  "inflict pain on, or cause unnecessary stress to, living organisms are not appropriate for submission. Investigations that are likely to have a harmful effect on health" 

My personal thought is that it must be okay as there is a guy in my class measuring vital capacity, which also touches a body entry, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

I'm not sure about the research question yet, although im thinking something in the line of " does eating a proportional amount of calories have a different effect on body temperature in males and females aged 18+- 1 year?" 

Any help or thoughts are welcome!
