Picking our nose and eating our boogers is a disgusting habit. At least that’s what we were taught while growing up. However, times have changed. According to a study, we should, in fact, be eating our boogers and encouraging our kids to do the same.
The study claims that boogers actually have an array of health benefits, which is why they are particularly important for growing children.
Scientists from Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology found that snot contains salivary mucins which form a barrier against cavity-causing bacteria.
