Should We All Start Picking Our Noses?
I once dated a nose-picker. I'm not talking about a guy who thumbed at his nose every now and then to politely retrieve a wayward boogie (a la Johnny Depp on the left). I'm talking about a consistent, digging-for-gold, finger-jammed-up-the-schnoz nose-picker.
Not only did his habit gross me out, it was something he did all the time, in public, in front of my family, friends, strangers, whomever. It was so bad that my mom once sat me down to express her concern. When we broke up (for non-habit-related reasons), my dad told me he was relieved at the fact that I wasn't going to marry a guy who constantly had his digits crammed up his nasal cavities.
However, as gross as his constant nose-picking was, apparently there might have been some kind of health benefit to my ex's booger-excavation. At least, that's what one Canadian teacher is trying to prove: According to theDaily Mail, professor Scott Napper is requesting his students help him investigate the potential health benefits of, I can't even believe I am writing this, PICKING YOUR NOSE AND EATING IT. Yes,thisis what the world has come to, folks.
Napper says that eating one's snot might help boost the immune system by putting germs back in the body. His theory is actually in line with other research suggesting that better hygiene has caused people to collectively have more allergies and auto-immune disorders. So, he's asking half of his class to eat their own boogers and the other to act as a "control" to further explore the issue.
From my first-hand experience, let me say this: I don't care how good for you nose-picking may really be, or how much it helps your immune system—it's still a deal-breaker in my book. (And the whole "eating it" thing? I just can't.)
AlI know is, if I was in this teacher's class, I think I would have to drop out.
