SCIENCE: EATING BOOGERS GOOD FOR YOU
0 0

I seriously gagged when I wrote that headline. I can't imagine putting a nose cheeto in my mouth but according to scientists at MIT, you may want to start picking your nose and (gag) eating it.

Still with me? Here's the science:

Scientists from Harvard and MIT just released the results of a study that found parents should NOT discourage their kids from picking their noses and possibly eating what they find because it's a, "rich reservoir of good bacteria."

They say that when you eat your mucus, it prevents bacteria from sticking to your teeth. And the good bacteria you're digesting can help fight against everything from ulcers to HIV.
