Funny: According to a ‘top Austrian doctor’, picking your nose and eating it is good for you:

‘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.’

    Are you joking about this nose picking thing? I have a bloke in the pod next to me at work and he continuously picks his nose (having blown through it first) and then eats the resulting mixture of mucus. Frankly I feel sick seeing him do this in full view of everyone in the office and I think it is completly antisocial! Surely people can get a boost to their immune system by ingesting other things like fresh fruit and veg and taking vitamins without having to resort to a habit which belongs with the primates in the zoo!
