Doctor Backs Picking Your Nose And Eating It
Picking your nose and eating it is one of the best ways to stay healthy, according to a top Austrian doctor.

Innsbruck-based lung specialist Prof Dr Friedrich Bischinger said people who pick their noses with their fingers were healthy, happier and probably better in tune with their bodies.

He says society should adopt a new approach to nose-picking and encourage children to take it up.

Dr Bischinger said: "With the finger you can get to places you just can't reach with a handkerchief, keeping your nose far cleaner.

"And eating the dry remains of what you pull out is a great way of strengthening the body's immune system.

"Medically it makes great sense and is a perfectly natural thing to do. In terms of the immune system the nose is a filter in which a great deal of bacteria are collected, and when this mixture arrives in the intestines it works just like a medicine.

"Modern medicine is constantly trying to do the same thing through far more complicated methods, people who pick their nose and eat it get a natural boost to their immune system for free. "

He pointed out that children happily pick their noses, yet by the time they have become adults they have stopped under pressure from a society that has branded it disgusting and anti social.

He said: "I would recommend a new approach where children are encouraged to pick their nose. It is a completely natural response and medically a good idea as well."

And he pointed out that if anyone was really worried about what their neighbour was thinking, they could still enjoy picking their nose in private if they still wanted to get the benefits it offered.

Would it be classified as 'vegan' or 'non-vegan'??

Technically so is everything because lots of vegetables are grown in manure which is also an animal by product.

Are veggies grown in manure?

well if you are a vegan you just have to eat things that are not animal byproducts... yes some veggies are grown with fertilizer made from animal byproducts like manure... good vegans just make sure not to eat those things i am sure. :tape: :lol:

:mad: how very dare you, no it wasn't!!
apparently he's a very successful businessman now, so it's not done him any harm. still, i'd rather be a failure than eat anything that comes out of my nose. ewwww :tape:

But it sounds like his was involuntary eating :p It's more like a hospital drip in that case, giving him vital nutrients.

So, as well as being successful, he's probably got a fabulous immune system.

I've been picking my nose and eating it for 24 years. :o

By the way, I don't think manure-grown foods are considered considered non-vegan, unless the manure was taken from the animals against their will.... :retard:

To be honest - I don't think its healthy because if your nose is very nosy, you could recieve a heart burns. I got them last week but now i still have it! Very sore. Do you know what i mean? Its could be a same thing if you pick your nose and eat it.

seems to me like thats illogical logic... either you eat animal by products or you dont. because otherwise one is just doing what every random mess one feels like (i.e. not use cheese because its made with the byproduct of a cow, but eat veggies fertilized by the same cow. or my personal favorite now anything "animal" like meat and so on, but eat yogurt all day because everyone knows if you cant see it with your naked eye its not alive :lol: :lol: :tape: :tape: )

He's probably right, but I don't think you actually need to EAT it. About a quart of mucus is draining down your throat a day so I don't think people should be told to eat their boogers. Besides, if kids have been playing in dirt or don't wash their hands well (which often happens with young children), then they should not be encouraged to put their fingers in the mouth IMO.

And yet, recent studies have indicated that early exposure to dirt and micro-organisms ("cooties" for short) is good for your immune system, and that children who have more contact with dirt and cooties have lower allergy rates.

Maybe there's a reason the filthy little beasts are filthy in the first place.

I think some exposure is good. I mean yes it seems like people who are used to a sterile envirnment will get sick alot more. However, I mean you can get ringworm, staff, all kinds of stuff from being in the dirt.

LOL!!! :worship: :worship: so very very true....

we still need someone to give us a review of what boogers taste like.
