Picking your nose - Good for your health?

Written by Chris Towland

Continued from page 1

"Medically it makes great sense and is a perfectly natural thing to do. In terms ofrepparttar immune systemrepparttar 146497 nose is a filter in which a great deal of bacteria are collected, and when this mixture arrives inrepparttar 146498 intestines it works just like a medicine.

"Modern medicine is constantly trying to dorepparttar 146499 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."

He pointed out that children happily pick their noses, yet byrepparttar 146500 time they have become adults they have stopped under pressure from a society that has branded it disgusting and anti social.

He said: "I would recommend a new approach where children are encouraged to pick their nose. It is a completely natural response and medically a good idea as well."

And he pointed out that if anyone was really worried about what their neighbour was thinking, they could still enjoy picking their nose in private if they still wanted to getrepparttar 146501 benefits it offered.

So perhaps next time you see a driver picking their nose you should give them a thumbs up too because we now know they're just trying to improve their own health. Perhaps we should all pick our noses as we drive along. Perhaps Burton's Queens Hospital will be a quieter place because we'll all be much healthier (yes I know I could go intorepparttar 146502 dangers of having one hand up your nose and not onrepparttar 146503 steering wheel but I'm just not going there!). Perhaps this will catch on and as we drive along picking our noses we'll try to spotrepparttar 146504 odd person who is NOT picking too. Perhaps there'll be a Burton on Trent Picking Club. Perhaps pickers will get cheaper health insurance ........

and then again .......perhaps not (or should that be perhap snot)!!!!!!!!
