Does age affect the concentration of amylase in saliva?

So does this seem like an ok EE topic? I'm going to test the amylase concentration myself by seeing how fast the saliva can break down starch.

And then I could relate this to metabolism and things like that, but can this actually work? and what if my results come and age doesn't affect amylase concentration?

I don't see anything wrong with it... I don't think it's breaking the human-testing ethics thing.

Do you have reason to think that the concentration of this enzyme might change as a person ages? If you do and your results suggest that age doesn't affect this, then you won't be penalized, I don't think.
