Not quite convinced just yet, but according to Doctor Scott Napper, who teaches an introductory course in bio molecules at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, picking the nose and eating it may actually be training your kid’s immune system to the different types of pathogens and agents that may be present within the air.
Well, we have to admit that at some point in our childhood we did that. C’mon admit it, don’t be so shy. LOL. As parents, of course we don’t want our kids eating boogers. The study has not been done yet but according to Napper, it’ll only take a few weeks and he already has a line of people wanting to participate.
