Is Eating Boogers Bad For You?
Eating boogers is bad for two reasons: one, you are eating the mucous or saliva that collects bacteria and other germs and second, it’s regarded as a bad habit that is quite irritating for others and is generally socially unacceptable. The society will look at someone eating boogers very strangely and as if he or she were displaying an animal-like behavior. Also, picking them out with your fingers can result in nose bleed, instead of helping you to keep your nose clean. Usually booger-eating is seen only among children, before they get socialized.
