So I have been noticing lately, how all kids eat boogers. I tend to look at kids, to see how most things are done naturally. Is booger eating a natural occurance? Is there a reason we should/shouldn't eat our boogers? Any chance it builds immunities, or aids in allergy prevention?
Boogers, according to Dr. Friedrich Bischinger, are valuable immune boosting little nuggets of gold. HAHAHA
You may think it's funny, but it's snot.
If your ever in the situation were you must drink your own urine to survive I propose you also eat your boogers.
I do understand were the question comes from, and agree. I see my sons do the grok squat effortlessly and other animalistic movements that come natural that we seem to grow out of. I'm all for not washing my fruits and veggies when they come from my home organic garden to get some good stuff out of that. I feel like hyperwashing everything we ingest has some negative effect but I still do it with market goods.
I must admit though that I have actually never witnessed either of my boys nor do I actually recall ever eating boogers as a child. So as this seems to be a rare event even in children I'll abstain and not feel like I'm missing out. I just bought some local raw honey though for the whole allergy thing :)
I don;t know but I remember reading about this a few years a ago here is an article about it
Also I have heard that is the reason the mucus in your nose is salty
