Love the frozen reference.
Anyways disgusting, yes. Healthy, inconclusive only theories that it helps immune system by introducing bacteria and viruses in a near dead state. Either way I still find it disgusting and should talk to him about it

that reminds me of when I was a kid my cousins used to stay over and I watched one of them pick a huge juicy booger that was like the size of her palm then let the dog eat it....*shudders inwardly*

I've never understood what is so fascinating about eating a booger. Seriously, that's gross.

It's actually a really hard habit to break. Also, since mucus traps harmful bacteria and minor viruses it helps with the immune system.. So there's a plus side..

Immune system help partly a habit, but partly the salt if you like salty tastes Sounds gross, but it's not your body.

On the flip side, if you still can't break the habit, do it only in absolute private so you won't be judged and others won't be grossed out.

There is no benefit to your immune system. People have made this up because they want to excuse their disgusting habit. Snot & mucous goes down the nose and back of the throat all the time, so we always ingest mucous and snot. So picking a booger & eating it does not increase your immune system more than the snot & mucous that is already being ingested. Good try though booger eaters. *gag*

Not a plus side, but whenever I'm sick and congested my snot just kinda leaks into my throat anyway. Gross and annoying, but at least it's sort of a natural thing...

That's what I'm saying 84. It's already going down our throat all the time. So if there is a boost in the immune system, eating a few boogers will not increase your immune system any more than all the snot and mucous that is already being ingested. If there's any immune boost its from the snot & mucous already going down our throats. And yes, even though snot & mucous is already being ingested, that is involuntary and not touching our tastebuds. Booger eating is voluntary and touches your tastebuds which is probably why it grosses people out.

I knew a guy in high school who proudly ate his boogers, because "they are healthy" he would eat them in class, and didn't care who saw. It was absolutely disgusting!
