SCIENCE: Could Eating Your Boogers Boost Your Immune System?

A small, very gross subsection of the country will be excited about this:  “The New York Times” talked to some experts about how the world is becoming too sterile because of things like antibacterial soap.  And it’s weakening our immune systems.

A doctor they talked to in Denver named Meg Lemon said it might be a good idea to pick your nose more . . . and then EAT IT.  She didn’t give a specific reason for why it could help.

But if you needed an excuse, now you’ve got one . . . from a doctor.  And by the way, if you drop food on the floor, she says pick that up and eat it too.
