    They sure have good doctors in Pakistan!

    I eat boogers all the time. They are basically just dead white blood cells.

    Well, that settles it, I am going to pick my nose and eat it now and no more removing my son`s dirty fingers from their noses. (violently gags) LOL

    It makes no sense to eat your boogers. If the nose hair is there to filter pollution, why the would you want to eat it?

    That makes as much sense as licking the handrails at the subway station to get my immune system tougher. I suppose I`d have nice puffy lips from all the cold sores. Who needs collagen with those free options?

    Snot amd boogers are made for a reason. To stop the dirt entering your body...so your gonna stop all that hard work and just eat them. Hmm...makes sense

    I`ve been saying this for years...

    That paper is a load of garbage, but I do seriously believe that eating boogers is an instinctual mechanism for strengthening the immmune system.

    The hairs in your nose that are used to filter bacteria are also found on the inside of the throat. They are there to stop bacteria from passing the epiglottis. It makes sence, mucus is swallowed sub-caunciously and destroyed by the hydro-chloric acid in your stomach. Hooray for nose-picking!!!

    Ok.... some people:
    Nose hairs keep out the dust...ok? Not the snot.
    The snot is the bacteria that manages to get past the nose hairs. For those dumb enough: Bacteria is a living thing... can be good in some cases, but mostly bad. Bacteria can cause infections, colds, and even deseases. A certain bacteria lives in our stomachs and keeps the stomach acid from burning through our stomachs.
    It strengthens the immune system... here...
    Shots are weak bacteria that are put in your body so your immune system learns to fight it when it comes. Snot is strong bacteria that can just get you sick. Because its not weakened with a certain liquid that doctors use. So, this paper isnt real. Its another hoax.... Ew. Well... have fun booger eaters ::cough::ew!::cough::

    Of course it makes sense because thats why you should not keep newborn babies away from every bit of dirt cos it helps the imunity system. if you keep babies constantly in a anti-bacterial enviroment all the time they will pick up every single virus they come across. but yeah ewwwwwwww it must taste pretty nasty.

    !!That`s new to me!!

    FYI, eating your own body`s by-products is totally different from eating someone else`s. Eating your own snot is NOT the same as licking the handrails at your local subway stop or wherever. I don`t recommend either practice, but the second one is truly dangerous. But you knew that already :)

    Its evolution baby. Ive been doing it for years and ive been truly sick maybe MAYBE once in the past 10? its disgusting and socially unacceptable, but theres so much mucus, the liquid-y form slithering all over your esophagus, it really doesnt seem to matter after you think of that.

    This comes under the same theory that you should let your kids play in the dirt, rather than keep them inside, disinfecting everything every minute of the day. When people (this is of course generalised, from what study I don`t know) are exposed to certain levels of bacteria (that is, I should say when certain parts of the body are exposed to unnatural or higher levels of normal flora) their immune system builds up a resistance to this, making them healthier. Not that I`ve seen it, but there`s got to have been a study on this subject. Adam Spencer did mention this quite some time ago on a special episode of `The Glass House`, subsequently picking his nose and eating it. I grew up playing in the dirt and picking my nose, only having a cold a year and the worst thing I`ve ever had is sinusitis (try blowing a bowl of custard out of your nose), which I caught off my mum.

    Hahaha. I heard that you already eat a ton of mucus everyday because it travels down your throat so either way you are technically eating your boogers!
