A small, very gross subsection of the country will be excited about this: “The New York Times” talked to some experts about how the world is becoming too sterile because of things like antibacterial soap. And it’s weakening our immune systems.
A doctor they talked to in Denver named Meg Lemon said it might be a good idea to pick your nose more and then EAT IT. She didn’t give a specific reason for why it could help.
But if you needed an excuse, now you’ve got one from a doctor. And by the way, if you drop food on the floor, she says pick that up and eat it too.
