I don't know where this interest started. I just can't seem to stop and NO ONE would dare talk about it. It's sooo gross. I know it is, but it's not really that gross. There are a lot sicker things in the world than eating your own boogies.
I've often wondered, if booger eating is so horribly awful for you, then why don't I get sick more than the average NBE (non-booger eater)? Maybe your boogers have a function besides keeping the insides of your nose slightly moist. Maybe they help your body maintain a slight amount of foul germs inside of it and boost your immune system.
My parents (who know about my habit) gave me an article once that they found. It was from a Swiss doctor who claimed that people who eat their own boogers have the right idea because it provides your body with, not a healthy treat, but a low dose of viruses and the like and helps you fight infections. MMmmm...come to think of it, when I was taking a German class, I knew this guy who had been an exchange student in Switzerland. He said his whole adopted family used to sit around and eat their boogers together, often comparing them and bragging. Maybe the Swiss are on to something...
Am I alone on this or what?
